McCarthy Tétrault‘s team garners praise for its ‘good technical knowledge and good understanding of how tax impacts business.’ The team provides top tier transactional support to a sizeable number of clients, with notable expertise in the resources, manufacturing, financial services, communications, technology, real estate and transportation sectors. Its tax planning practice, which was boosted by the recent arrival of Randy Schwartz from PwC Law LLP, covers matters concerning multijurisdictional tax structures, tax-exempt entities and commodity tax issues. On the contentious side, the group acts for clients in tax audits, investigations and appeals. Its strength has been bolstered recently with a number of major partner hires, including the arrivals of Jeff Oldewening from KPMG Law in Canada and Mike Hegedus from PwC Law LLP. Raj Juneja leads the team in Toronto, with the practice also operating out of the Calgary, Montreal and Vancouver offices. Other key names include litigators Chia-yi Chua and Robert Kopstein, as well as Gabrielle Richards and Douglas Cannon. Michel Ranger joined from McMillan LLP.
