Jonathan N Garbutt JD
Of Counsel, Barrister and Solicitor
“Tax avoidance and tax evasion are polar opposites. The latter requires a complete disregard for the law, while the former requires strict adherence to the law.” - The Fiscal Artist, Formally Known as Emjayo’see, November 19, 2015 (AKA Michael O’Connor, Chairman of the Canadian Tax Foundation)
Well-practiced in the disciplines of cross-border tax planning, transfer pricing, M&A work, trusts and estates, and tax controversy and litigation, Jonathan has experience with both a large multinational firm, as well as his own boutique practice. He was called to the bar in both Canada and the US, but he does not advise on US matters. That doesn’t mean he can’t “speak American” when it comes to cross-border tax issues.
Jonathan’s significant experience with cross-border clients means he fits in perfectly around our office. His diverse skill set and expertise in the areas of transfer pricing and tax controversy make him a valuable asset to our firm.
