Blakes is pleased to announce that, for the second year in a row, we have seven partners — the most of any Canadian law firm — listed in International Tax Review’s Women in Tax Leaders, a guide to the leading female tax advisers in the world:

“Our intention with this guide is to shine the light on the women who are taking strides in their fields,” said Anjana Haines, Editor of International Tax Review. “We want to show the progress that is being made, but also that it needs to continue for women in what is perceived as a male-dominated industry.”

Each of our lawyers listed in the guide has a proven track record of providing the best in-class service to clients and adds considerable bench strength to our top-rated Tax group, which is consistently recognized in a number of surveys and guides. Most recently, we were named “Law Firm of the Year” by Best Lawyers in the area of Tax Law and awarded “Americas Energy Tax Deal of the Year” in International Tax Review's Americas Tax Awards 2016 for our work on the TransCanada/Columbia Pipeline Group transaction.

The selection process for the Women in Tax Leaders guide was based on client and peer nominations as well as on evidence of outstanding success in the past year.
