International Tax Litigator and Former Crown Counsel Joins Osler's Tax Practice

Osler, Hoskin & Harcourt LLP is delighted to announce that David Jacyk has joined our partnership and will lead our Vancouver-based tax litigation practice.

VANCOUVER, Aug. 14, 2017 /CNW/ - David Jacyk has built a formidable tax litigation practice over more than two decades most notably with the Department of Justice Canada as General Counsel, and more recently with the Crown Law Office/Inland Revenue in New Zealand. In the course of his stellar litigation career he has been involved in litigating many of Canada's high profile tax cases for the Crown and is deeply knowledgeable in controversies affecting corporate taxpayers. David's practice spans areas beyond tax litigation including civil litigation, customs and anti-dumping, bankruptcy and insolvency, judicial review, constitutional and other matters.

"Our clients are facing heightened audit and assessment activity that, more than ever,  requires a superior level of tax expertise, specialized advocacy and deep insight into the court process in order to respond," said Monica Biringer, co-head of Osler's National Tax Group.

Al Meghji, who heads up the firm's market leading tax litigation group explains: "Having David lead our  Vancouver tax disputes practice with a team that  includes former Supreme Court of Canada Justice Marshall Rothstein and former Federal Court of Appeal Justice Karen Sharlow, adds immeasurably to our ability to meet the growing demand for top flight tax litigation services in Vancouver and nationally. We couldn't be more delighted to welcome David to our team."
