Our Tax Litigation group has unparalleled experience in Canadian tax matters. We represent clients at every level and in every manner of tax dispute.
Our lawyers have appeared in all levels of court, including the Tax Court of Canada, the Federal Court of Appeal, the Supreme Court of Canada and all provincial courts, and have been involved in many of the most significant tax cases litigated in Canada.
As important as our successes in court are our successes outside of court. Our experience has enabled us to resolve the majority of our cases quickly and efficiently without the need for a public hearing. This may be achieved during the administrative appeal process with the Canada Revenue Agency or, later, through negotiations with counsel at the Department of Justice. In addition, we have successfully obtained a number of rectification and rescission orders to “undo” third party mistakes that resulted in unintended tax consequences to our clients.
Our Litigation group represents clients under criminal investigation by the Canada Revenue Agency and has successfully represented clients against charges of tax evasion and other regulatory offenses.
