Our growing team of professionals strives to serve our clients above and beyond their expectations.
I am a legal and business professional with over 20 years of experience developing and leading corporate strategies to grow value; expand corporate presence; and protect corporate interests. I have provided legal support and business guidance and direction to property tax practice groups in Canada and the United States. Throughout my career I have successfully leveraged innovative approaches and established strategic relationships to deliver professional services, build market share and increase revenue.
Applying the knowledge and skills I have acquired providing counsel to an administrative tribunal, serving as an Acting Chair of a provincial property tax assessment appeal board, and representing taxpayers in proceedings before property tax assessment appeal tribunals across Canada my role has most recently included providing legal representation in high value property tax assessment appeals in Ontario. As a property assessment appeal advocate my goal is ensuring the most cost-effective management of my client’s property tax assessments and property tax liabilities so they can realize their corporate objectives. I am focused on this goal and on delivering value to clients but always in the context of a commitment to ethical standards and operating with integrity
