Biography

“My experience in the sale of goods and consumer sales industry has given me firsthand knowledge of the hard work and dedication it takes to successfully operate a business, and our clients deserve no less from me. Working with clients to develop novel and efficient legal strategies to advance their respective position in legal disputes and to otherwise enforce their rights, is a job that I not only enjoy, but take very seriously.”

Sean Flaherty’s hands-on experience in the business world has taught him practical lessons about running a successful enterprise; and that careful attention to legal matters are but one element of a successful business.

While Sean believes that legal counsel and their clients must work closely as a team, he endeavours to manage his clients’ legal affairs with as little interference with their business and personal affairs as possible, such that his clients can focus on other important aspects of their business and lives with the comfort that their legal affairs are well taken care of.

The primary focus of Sean’s practice is Tax Litigation.  Sean is a member of the Tax Group at McKenzie Lake Lawyers LLP, and has had the privilege of working within an exceptionally talented group of tax litigators, to help his clients navigate difficult and complex tax disputes with all levels of government, including the Federal Government, the Ontario Provincial Government and various Ontario Municipal Governments.

While the focus of Sean’s practice is tax litigation, he also maintains a Commercial Litigation practice in the areas of employment and human rights law, contractual and business disputes and defamation.  Sean has also had the distinct honour of assisting many of Canada’s First Nations with their commercial litigation needs.

Sean’s practice has resulted in a number of appearances in number of Courts and Tribunals, including the Tax Court of Canada, the Ontario Superior Court of Justice, the Ontario Court of Appeal, the Federal Court of Appeal, the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario and the Ontario Labour Board.

Outside of the office, Sean endeavors to stay active and enjoys spending time outdoors; engaging in various activities such as hockey, baseball and golf.
