We do not hold ourselves out to be accountants or “tax specialists”; however, we do strive to stay current with changes to the Canadian taxation system (especially as it affects farmers & ranchers).

In this respect, we believe that we are more knowledgeable than the average lawyer in the area of taxation. This translates into a benefit to our clients as we are well able to converse with your accountant and provide him/her with solid and complete agreements for tax-driven transactions.

Some examples of this type of work include:

section 85/86 “rollovers”;
“share-for-share exchanges”;
estate freezes;
“butterfly” transactions;
family trusts; and
general corporate reorganizations.
