We have extensive experience advising in connection with issues involving: hostile and friendly cross-border mergers and acquisitions; cross-border public and private debt and equity offerings; the selection of tax efficient holding company locations; the development and implementation of cross-border financing and treasury operations; controlled foreign company (foreign affiliate) tax planning; income tax treaties; profit repatriation; loss utilization; managing intellectual property and intangible assets; developing tax efficient supply chains; and transfer pricing.

Thorsteinssons has long-standing relationships with highly-recognized legal advisers outside of Canada and members of our international tax group routinely meet with lawyers in other jurisdictions to ensure a continuing understanding of global issues impacting cross-border investment. Our established network of relationships ensures timely access to and co-ordination of foreign advice and ensures timely, innovative and high quality advice when dealing in multiple jurisdictions.
