Profile

Gordon leads Fuller Landau’s tax practice. Gordon joined our firm in 1996 and became a tax partner in 2003. He has over 20 years of experience helping private companies and their shareholders. He works with clients in many industries assisting them with corporate, personal and sales tax matters including estate planning, corporate reorganizations and international tax. Gordon routinely assists foreign companies looking to expand their business into Canada, either by establishing a new operation here, or through an acquisition of an existing business. Our clients recognize him as someone they wish to consult before making significant business decisions.

“We make it our business to help owner managers achieve their objectives. We work hand-in-hand with our clients to help them understand all of the tax issues and provide them with the insights they need to make smart decisions.”
