Biography

Michael (Mike) Coburn practice is concentrated on corporate and personal tax matters.

With regulatory and legislative tax frameworks continuing to evolve, Mike works to efficiently structure mergers and acquisitions, corporate reorganizations, financings and other business transactions. Mike advises clients across a wide range of industries, including mining, energy and digital media, working to address the significant tax implications of their business. As alternative methods of financing continue to become more prevalent across the mining and energy sectors, Michael advises on the tax-related issues of structures like royalties, LNG income tax, and “flow through” share offerings.

Regularly assisting clients in disputes with the Canada Revenue Agency, Mike’s transactional work has also facilitated client operations across Canada, the U.S., and internationally, structuring both “in-bound” and “out-bound” cross-border compliance investments.
