Margaret Nixon, a former associate with Stikeman Elliott LLP, has returned to the business law firm as a partner in the tax group.

Nixon practises in the areas of tax controversy and tax litigation and has handled a wide range of tax disputes and issues including transfer pricing, the general anti-avoidance rule, tax treaties, foreign tax credits, withholding tax, goods and services tax/harmonized sales tax, shareholder benefits and share valuation. She has represented clients before the Tax Court of Canada, the Federal Court of Appeal, the Federal Court and the Ontario Superior Court of Justice.

Nixon is a member of the Canadian Tax Foundation, the Canadian Bar Association, the Ontario Bar Association, the International Fiscal Association and The Advocates’ Society. She is also a former member of the taxation section executive of the Ontario Bar Association. Internationally, Nixon was a Canadian branch reporter for the 2016 International Fiscal Association Congress in Madrid on the topic of “Dispute Resolution Procedures in International Tax Matters.”

“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.”
