Award Received from IBFD and Acquisition International

Thrilled to have received 2015 Best in Canada for Cross-border Taxation and Succession Planning from the IBFD and Acquisition International. The IBFD has always meant so much to me with its authors such as the renowned Kees van Raad whose commentary guided myself and my team members of the Jessup Moot in law school in the preparation of our factums. Great memories. And yes in practice I continue to rely on the IBFD and its resources.
