Ms. Rabbat participates in the tax planning group at Sweibel Novek.
Her practice encompasses many facets of domestic tax law, including personal, estate, and corporate income tax planning for individuals and owner-managed businesses, federal and provincial sales tax issues, and corporate/commercial law, including reorganizations, mergers and acquisitions. She also represents taxpayers in residency determinations and at the audit and objection stages.
Ms. Rabbat has played a key role in asset and share sales from the initial tax planning stage to documenting the finer details of the commercial transactions negotiated by the parties. She has also been instrumental in successfully negotiating voluntary disclosures on behalf of taxpayers.
She is a member of the Canadian Tax Foundation (CTF), the Association de Planification fiscal et financière (APFF), the Canadian Bar Association (CBA), and an informal monthly tax study group. She also sits as a legal advisor on the Clinical Ethics Committee of the Jewish Rehabilitation Hospital.
