As a tax lawyer, I practice Canadian income tax law, including matters of general tax planning; global corporate tax minimization, tax advice for M&A, international private investment & tax controversy & litigation.

While working at one of the largest law firms in the world as a tax lawyer, I developed a practice in international private banking, specifically advising global high net-worth individuals, families, family offices, financial institutions & trust companies with respect to their interactions with the Canadian tax system. I have advised with regard to all aspects of non-resident trusts settled by, or for the benefit of, Canadian residents, as well as the tax-efficient immigration & emigration for high net worth individuals into & out of Canada. I have also advised in respect of investments by high-net worth Canadian residents off-shore, including private placement insurance contracts, & on the structuring of such investments & transactions for financial institutions. I regularly speak on these issues at various private banking events both in Canada & around the world.
