Our lawyers can provide you and your advisors with the advice and expertise throughout every stage of the tax planning process, from the creation of the initial plan through to implementation.

From the review of your personal or corporate tax situation or structure, to the tax efficient set-up, expansion or sale of your business, to advising on the creation and administration of family trusts, to advising on the tax-efficient division of assets upon marriage break-down or separation, to tax-planned wills or advising estates on post-mortem tax planning, our practitioners are able to provide you with practical advice and creative solutions.

Our tax lawyers have practical experience in diverse personal and corporate tax matters.

Our team has experience handling the needs of businesses of all shapes and sizes. Our corporate/commercial practice is handled by a combination of senior and junior solicitors. This enables us to provide sound, cost-effective advice to you on a wide variety of matters.

To achieve effective tax planning, our practitioners work closely with your other advisors, including your corporate/commercial counsel, real estate, banking and financial advisors, insurance brokers and accounting providers.

Members of our tax group are also members of our other groups and have diverse expertise in areas of corporate/commercial, banking, real estate law, trusts, wills, and estates. This range of experience allows our tax practitioners to understand and appreciate the non-tax aspects of your particular situation or transaction, all with a mind to providing you integrative, cost-effective services and solutions, to address your unique tax needs and planning.

Our tax law services include:

  • Tax-Deferred Corporate Transfers
  • Tax-Planned Amalgamations and Dissolutions
  • Family Trust Transfers and Wild-Ups
  • Estate Freeze Transactions
