Canada: Corporate Tax Experts 2017

In this chapter, we recognise four of the country’s elite corporate tax experts. They are selected for their exceptional work as both expert witnesses and pre-trial advisers in complex tax proceedings.

At THE UNIVERSITY OF CALGARY, Jack Mintz wins acclaim for his extensive experience providing expert testimony in tax proceedings. His profound knowledge of domestic and international tax law leads one market commentator to comment: “Jack is the strongest on a very strong list."

THE UNIVERSITY OF WATERLOO’S Brian Arnold is a globally recognised expert in international taxation whose understanding of cross-border tax structures has seen him advise various governments and authorities, including the UN. According to one source, “Every tax practitioner in Canada knows him.”

Richard Wise at MNP boasts “an impressive track record” as a business valuation specialist and expert witness. His participation in more than 1,500 valuations of shares and interests over 18 years means that “very few people in North America have Mr Wise’s experience.”

The “very strong” Howard Johnson at DUFF & PHELPS brings an impressive range of expertise to his expert testimony. As a managing director at the firm’s M&A advisory practice, his broad corporate approach makes him an asset in tax litigation proceedings.
