Adrienne Woodyard, of Davis LLP's Toronto office, was quoted recently in the Financial Post and Ottawa Citizen. In the article, "Court ruling clarifies tax loophole plug's use," Drew Hasselback describes a decision issued on Friday by the Supreme Court of Canada in Copthorne v. The Queen, in which the Court unanimously upheld the Canada Revenue Agency's use of the General Anti-Avoidance Rule (GAAR). Adrienne provided commentary for Drew’s article.
