Tax and Estates

Our bench strength is in tax.


Pitblado was one of the first firms in Canada to offer specialized tax planning services, and we continue this legacy today. We help structure business and personal affairs in a tax effective manner – to create and improve many structures still in use today.

We are home to some of Canada's most innovative and experienced tax lawyers assisting clients with:

  • Buying and selling companies
  • Merging and financing businesses
  • Growing operations in Canada, the U.S. and abroad
  • Succession planning and wealth retention


Pitblado works extensively with aboriginal groups, charitable and nonprofit organizations, and pension funds to maintain tax exempt status. We also help clients resolve disputes with Canada Revenue Agency and represent them in tax cases before the courts, up to and including the Supreme Court of Canada.
