About the team

Deloitte Legal is a national law firm with offices in Montréal, Toronto, Vancouver, and Calgary. Our firm was founded as a boutique firm serving clients exclusively in the area of Tax Law. While Deloitte Legal has grown into a multi-service law firm, tax law continues to be our largest practice. We act for a wide range of clients, including multinational enterprises and high net-worth individuals, and are frequently engaged on complex and pioneering cases. Our tax litigators have diverse professional backgrounds and work collaboratively to provide our clients with the highest quality of service.

We act as trusted, agile, business-savvy advisors empowering clients to achieve their business goals. We have the privilege of being affiliated with Deloitte, a world-renowned professional services firm, and being able to collaborate with other entities of the group worldwide.
