Representative work

Deans Knight Income Corporation appeal to Supreme Court of Canada

Appeared at Supreme Court of Canada in precedent-setting tax case, Deans Knight Income Corporation v. His Majesty the King.  This high-profile dispute asked whether the general anti-avoidance rule in the Income Tax Act could apply to nullify a company's losses after it underwent a recapitalization and restart transaction.  With a taxpayer win at the Tax Court of Canada, which was subsequently overturned by the Federal Court of Appeal, the taxpayer appealed to the Supreme Court of Canada.  The appeal was heard on November 2, 2022.
