Farris lawyers work together with our clients and their accountants to provide timely, innovative and practical tax advice.
Representing a broad range of domestic, international, public and private-sector corporate clients across many industries, we provide guidance in areas of expertise such as mergers & acquisitions, real estate, structuring corporate groups and partnerships, fund formation and executive compensation. For our private clients, we offer advice in owner-manager tax planning, estate and trust planning, private equity and venture capital investments.
The idea of an audit is never a pleasant one. Our lawyers represent clients in all types of CRA audits and disputes, assisting with CRA proposals, voluntary disclosures, objections to CRA findings and appeals.
Members of the tax group have published extensively and are regular speakers at tax and business conferences, including events sponsored by the Canadian Tax Foundation, the International Fiscal Association and the Tax Executives Institute.
