Stikeman Elliott is excited to announce the return of Margaret Nixon as a partner in our Toronto Tax Group. Margaret brings considerable experience in tax controversy and tax litigation to the group.

“It is a pleasure to welcome Margaret back to Stikeman Elliott,” said Toronto office Managing Partner, Jay Kellerman. “It is quite rewarding when our people find their way back to us.”

“We are eager to add Margaret’s knowledge and experience to our Tax Group for the benefit of our clients,” said John Lorito, Head of the Tax Group in Toronto.

Margaret represents corporations and individuals in tax disputes with the Canada Revenue Agency and provincial tax authorities, and has experience resolving disputes involving a broad range of tax issues. She has successfully represented clients at the audit and appeals levels and in litigation proceedings in the Tax Court of Canada, the Federal Court of Appeal, the Federal Court and the Ontario Superior Court of Justice.

Stikeman Elliott was founded on tax expertise and our Tax Group continues to expand and provide clients with advice that is insightful, creative and tailored to protect their business interests. Clients benefit from a full suite of services for domestic and international tax advice across all industries, including resolving disputes through negotiations with various tax authorities and litigating before the courts.
