Daniel Benhayoun
Daniel is an innate strategist. His supremely analytical and creative mind has always benefited me as a client by providing me with innovative solutions to seemingly unsolvable problems..." Asher Botbol, 2008.


Daniel Benhayoun was born in Ouezzane, Morocco. After moving to Israel at a young age, and residing there for a number of years, he has lived in Venezuela, Chile, and currently, in Miami, FL. He first obtained a Bachelor's Degree in Law from Universidad Catolica Andres Bello in Caracas, Venezuela, where he graduated in the top five percent of his class.

After practicing law in Venezuela for over 25 years, Daniel graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Juris Doctor from St. Thomas University in Miami, FL, where he was also awarded a Dean's Merit Scholarship. Daniel subsequently earned his Master of Laws in Taxation with an emphasis in International Taxation, from the University of Florida Levin College of Law.

In his career as a corporate attorney in Venezuela, Daniel successfully negotiated multimillion dollar contracts both in the private and public sectors.

Daniel is an innate strategist. His supremely analytical and creative mind has always benefited his clients by providing them with innovative solutions to seemingly unsolvable problems. This skill allowed his firm to become one of the most sought after law firms in Venezuela.

Daniel has always had a keen interest in the financial markets. This allowed him to extensively self-educate about investments strategies. This understanding has allowed him to better advise his clients in their financial matters.
