GIL JACOB KORN
Prior to establishing a boutique income tax, trust and estate law firm, most recently, Gil J. Korn worked in Vancouver as a member of Manulife Financial’s renowned Tax and Estate Planning Group.
Gil has also worked at a major international accounting firm, as a member of its tax practice, and was a tax associate at a well known local law firm where he continued his tax specialization while also doing work in the corporate / commercial areas. He has gained experience in both personal and corporate income tax matters, including trusts and partnerships, in both the domestic and international / non-resident areas. He has covered much of the spectrum of business succession and estate planning in the course of his work over the years.
Having attained an undergraduate degree in math and economics from McGill University Gil went on to study law and business at Dalhousie University in Halifax, gaining admission to the B.C. Bar in August of 1996.
Gil has co-authored articles that have been published in the prestigious Canadian Tax Journal, including feature submissions dealing with inter-spousal transfers of property, and employee stock options. His writings have also appeared in the Financial Post, British Columbia Chartered Accounts magazine “Beyond Numbers”, and the Conference for Advanced Life Underwriters’ publication “CALU Report”. He has written and presented two papers for the B.C. Tax Conference organized by the Canadian Tax Foundation.
When not working
Gil enjoys his community service which has included sitting as a board member of two local charities, and tutoring the Indepth Tax course run by the Canadian Institute of Chartered Accountants. He is an avid runner and is forever trying to break his personal best marathon time, which may not ever happen following the arrival of his baby daughter.
