Our tax lawyers have created and implemented innovative tax-assisted financing vehicles and participated as tax counsel on acquisitions, divestitures, reorganizations and restructurings, securities and corporate finance, aboriginal organizations, pension funds, private equity, energy, employment and real estate. Our tax team also provides advice on sales and use taxes, as well as customs and excise duties.
As tax litigators we have represented a broad range of clients in tax litigation matters before Canadian courts. Our tax litigators have built a solid reputation with representatives of the Canada Revenue Agency and lawyers at the Tax Law Services branch of the Department of Justice, which has often resulted in the early resolution of tax disputes. Our goal is to provide you with the best advice and representation in order to minimize the impact that tax disputes may have on your business activities.
Schwarz Law LLP’s tax lawyers also provide assistance in personal tax and estate planning in conjunction with our clients' accounting and financial advisors. Our lawyers assist our private clients by developing and implementing comprehensive estate plans, including estate freezes, reorganizations of private corporations or closely-held entities, wills, powers of attorney and inter vivos trust agreements.
