Fred Purkey is the newest equity partner at McCarthy Tétrault LLP.

He joined the Montreal office as part of the firm’s national tax group, where he will continue his practice of advising on the income tax issues relating to mergers and acquisitions of public and private corporations, corporate reorganizations, real estate investment trusts, pension funds, financing structures and private equity funds. He acts for large commercial real estate entities with holdings in Quebec and elsewhere in Canada, as well as for international corporations doing business in Canada. Purkey also advises Canadian companies on goods and services tax matters and employee compensation arrangements.

“Fred’s unique skills and experience developed over the last two decades will be invaluable in protecting our clients’ tax interests in the context of large M&As, corporate reorganizations and complex tax structuring issues,” said Christian Meighen, partner and practice group leader for the national tax practice.

“Fred’s practical, client-oriented approach, and collaborative attitude, as well as his desire to mentor and develop others, are fully aligned with our firm’s values. We are thrilled for our clients and for our team that Fred has chosen to continue his career at McCarthy Tétrault.”
