Tax

Business leaders conducting complex transactions want efficiency, innovative thinking and a smart, successful path to the finish line. That’s what our market-leading Canada-U.S. tax lawyers deliver.

We take on your tax challenges and develop structures that work – often pursuing strategies that break new ground. We established a Canadian landmark with the original tax-deferred conversion of a mutual fund into a REIT. And we helped devise the unique inversion structure for the merger of two global quick-service restaurant chains.

Applying our extensive experience across all major industries and sectors, we help you navigate tax environments with agility and precision. We know how to satisfy divergent interests while achieving practical results that keep all parties on course. And when tax disputes arise, we stand by your side, helping to get the matter resolved as efficiently as possible – so you can keep moving forward.
