His career is highlighted by a deep-rooted expertise in navigating the intricate world of domestic and international tax planning, specifically tailored for private corporations and their owner-managers. He shines particularly bright in the areas of succession, estate planning for family-run enterprises, and the intricate webs of corporate restructuring, not to mention his adept handling of cross-border dealings and tax strategies for global businesses. His practice in wills and estates is equally commendable, specializing in the nuanced interplay between personal and corporate tax planning, crafting sophisticated wills aligned with corporate tax strategies, and navigating the complex tax scenarios faced by dual citizens and the estate planning that follows their demise.

His talent for simplifying the complex, particularly when guiding clients through the labyrinth of tax and estate planning, is underpinned by exceptional communicative clarity. This ability not only demystifies complex concepts but ensures that strategies are perfectly attuned to the client’s specific situation.

Matthew’s prowess was nationally recognized in 2019 when he was honored with the Lexpert Rising Star award, marking him as a Leading Lawyer Under 40. This accolade serves as a testament to his profound expertise across various domains, coupled with an unwavering commitment to excellence in client service.

At the core of Matthew’s professional journey is an impressive educational background, including his initiation into the Ontario Bar in 2006, completion of the CICA In-depth Tax Course, and earning of a JD from Osgoode Hall Law School and an MBA from the Schulich School of Business at York University in 2005, preceded by a BA with distinction from Western University’s Huron College in 2001. His career is not just a narrative of personal achievement but also of significant contributions to community involvement, reflecting a commitment that extends beyond the confines of his professional work.
