Douglas Powrie has joined the Vancouver office of Borden Ladner Gervais as a partner and will head the firm’s regional tax practice. In addition to serving regional clients, Powrie is expected to expand the firm’s national tax practice. Powrie’s legal career spans 21 years. He has been involved in some of the biggest transactions in Canada, including serving as Canadian tax counsel in the 2007 merger of Lundin Mining and Tenke Mining, creating a company valued at more than $5 billion at merger time. “Having Doug join us as a partner was a real coup for us,” Deborah Overholt, regional managing partner of the firm’s Vancouver office, said in a news release. “He is without a doubt one of the most skilled and respected tax lawyers in Canada, bringing a new leadership dimension to an already strong tax practice. He will be a magnet for some of the most exciting tax work in the country, and for the best legal talent who want to be involved with that work.” Powrie was previously in the Vancouver office of Thorsteinssons, a Canadian tax law firm. Borden Ladner Gervais has more than 700 lawyers in six Canadian cities.
