KPMG in Canada has appointed Justin Kutyan as senior partner of KPMG Law LLP. In this national role, Kutyan will lead the management of the law firm, it said in a statement.

He succeeds Mark Meredith, founding partner of KPMG Law and acting senior partner of its management committee, who will retire on Sept. 30.

Kutyan has been with KPMG Law for five years, it added, having joined as tax litigation and dispute resolutions partner. His practice centres on litigating tax cases, and he has extensive experience in trial advocacy. Kutyan began his legal career at the federal Department of Justice, before moving to a major national law firm prior to joining KPMG Law.

“Justin has distinguished himself as a tax litigator with an exceptional ability to deliver excellent outcomes for his clients,” said Lucy Iacovelli, KPMG’s Canadian managing partner, tax and chief administrative officer, KPMG Law. “KPMG Law’s talented team of legal professionals are working closely with our Tax, Audit and Advisory businesses to anticipate client needs and deliver more holistic business solutions. Justin’s natural leadership abilities and ‘one team’ approach will be a tremendous asset as we take KPMG Law to the next level.”

The firm also announced that Anna Balinsky, business law partner, will serve on its management committee, effective Oct. 1. Balinsky’s practice focuses on advising companies with respect to day-to-day operations, mergers and acquisitions and structuring.
