TAX LITIGATION

Queenstone Law represents individuals and businesses in resolving disputes with the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA), from audits to appeals. As with all of our files, all communications with our clients are protected by lawyer-client privilege. 

If a dispute is not resolved with the CRA and requires an appeal to the Tax Court of Canada, Queenstone Law is ready to help. Unlike bigger tax law firms with large overheads, Queenstone Law is able to provide practical representation that is also cost-effective. Most of our cases settle before a costly court hearing.

CONSULT WITH US

We understand that when a dispute arises, it can be daunting to decide how to proceed. That is why at Queenstone Law we provide an in-depth and value-added one hour consultation at a discounted rate. During the consultation, we will review your documents and discuss options and strategies.
