Duane has been advising individuals, small businesses and multi-national entities on a variety of tax issues since his call to the Ontario Bar in 2003.
After gaining close to 9 years of experience working for large Bay Street law firms, Duane opened his own tax boutique firm in 2011 where he is able to provide quality tax advice, at reasonable rates.
During his career, he has been involved in some of the most complicated and high profile transactions in Canada, and participated in several ground-breaking tax litigation cases. Having been trained and mentored by some of Canada’s best lawyers, he brings a unique perspective and varied experience to his practice.
Duane graduated from Osgoode Hall Law School in 2002, and from the University of Ottawa in 1999. He has appeared before the Ontario Court of Justice, the Superior Court of Justice, the Ontario Court of Appeal, the Tax Court of Canada, and the Federal Court of Appeal.
Duane was born and grew up in a small francophone community in Northern Ontario, but has been a Torontonian for over 15 years. In his spare time, he enjoys both playing and watching a number of sports, and travelling.
