Whether on a transaction, discrete tax matter or dispute, we bring sophisticated thinking and tax advice that progresses clients’ business objectives. We know how to help clients avoid the problems that can stall a deal or impede its success. When a transaction is complicated by multijurisdictional cash, operations, financing opportunities or targets, we collaborate with clients to find creative solutions for the situation at hand.
We advise on the likelihood of success on audit and how to present transactions to tax authorities to reduce the risk of reassessment. When a tax dispute arises, we handle all phases of tax controversy. With full-service tax capabilities in our Canadian and New York offices, we have regular exposure to evolving tax structures in both jurisdictions. Our clients are financial institutions, multinationals, and domestic companies, and we are also longstanding counsel to Canada’s largest pension funds and asset managers.
