More than ever, Canadian tax authorities are aggressively pursuing tax audits. It’s key to have an experienced team to navigate all stages of the tax dispute process relating to Canada’s federal and provincial taxes, including income tax, commodity taxes and GST/HST, and to advise on all stages of the dispute process – from risk assessment to audit through to appeals to the Courts.
We are particularly sensitive to, and able to provide advice on, matters of solicitor-client privilege. As communication with our team is protected by solicitor-client privilege, we can help you deal with tax disputes in a manner that provides maximum protection for your sensitive legal records.
Our multidisciplinary team provides advice in virtually every area of law, and we regularly draw on applicable non-tax expertise where it helps to achieve our clients’ objectives in a tax dispute.
We understand that the best or most cost-effective results in a tax dispute can be achieved by negotiation and settlement. We are keen to pursue any and all settlement opportunities wherever possible and when in line with our clients’ objectives, yet have the expertise to represent you in court if need be. Our litigators provide reliable counsel in the most complex tax cases, including before Tax Court of Canada, the appellate courts and the Supreme Court of Canada.
