Toronto, October 3, 2008 — McCarthy Tétrault has won the "Canada: Tax Litigation Law Firm of the Year" award at the International Tax Review’s third annual Americas Awards, held yesterday in New York City. The Americas Awards celebrate the "most innovative" tax work done in North and South America between June 2007 and June 2008.

The firm's tax group was also one of the five finalists in three other Americas Awards categories: "Canada: Tax Firm of the Year," "Tax Court of Canada Firm of the Year," and "North America: Tax Litigation Firm of the Year."

McCarthy Tétrault’s leading national tax disputes team has been involved in some of Canada’s highest-profile and precedent-setting cases, including two this year on the application of the general anti-avoidance rule (Lipson, Supreme Court of Canada and MacKay, Federal Court of Appeal).

"Our goal is to provide our clients with the most timely, innovative and practical tax counsel possible, and we are very pleased to have our achievement recognized," said Doug Cannon, National Practice Group Leader of McCarthy Tétrault Tax Group. "Our award and nominations are a testament to our lawyers’ exceptional ability to develop inventive tax solutions and creative tax arguments that deliver the best outcome for our clients."

To decide the winners, the International Tax Review’s editorial team undertook extensive research that included consulting numerous tax advisers, private-practice lawyers, tax executives and in-house counsel about groundbreaking work during the June 2007 to June 2008 period.
