Davies Tax Team Wins an ITR Americas Tax Award

Davies’ leadership in the area of tax law has been recognized by International Tax Review with the 2017 award for Americas Real Estate Tax Deal of the Year. This award recognizes our innovative tax work representing Ivanhoé Cambridge in its joint effort with Hines to develop Bay Park Centre, an integrated multi-tower office complex/public transit hub development straddling both sides of Toronto’s Union Station rail corridor. Davies shares this recognition with four other firms.

ITR’s annual Americas Tax Awards were presented on September 14, 2017, at the Pierre Hotel in New York City. Based on size, innovation, complexity and impact, the awards recognize transactions, planning or cases by North and South American firms and in-house teams that break new ground, set market precedents and have a cross-border element.
