Welcome Jennifer Talbot to Partnership

The New Year at Patterson Law has started with the promotion of Jennifer Talbot to partner.  

Based out of the firm’s downtown Halifax office, but available to clients through any of Patterson Law’s five offices across the province, Jennifer has practiced law for close to a decade, focusing on tax and estate planning for business owners and professionals, including corporate structuring and reorganizations, trusts and succession planning, tax litigation and disputes with the CRA, and advising charities.  She is a graduate of Saint Francis Xavier University (Bachelor of Arts, Honours, English), Saint Mary’s University (Master of Arts, Atlantic Canadian Studies) and Dalhousie Schulich School of Law.

“As a key leader in Patterson Law’s tax group, Jennifer has become one of our region’s top tax law practitioners,” said Dennis James, Managing Partner of Patterson Law. “Her ability to work through the challenging and ever-changing tax system and experience handling disputes and negotiations at the CRA and Tax Court level will continue to be an exceptional asset to our clients in her new partnership role.”

A member of the Nova Scotia Barristers Society, Canadian Bar Association and the Canadian Tax Foundation, she often presents to local accountants, investment advisors and bankers. Most notably, Jennifer has spoken on multiple occasions at the Atlantic Provinces Tax Conference and is well regarded for her knowledge of both the technical and practical aspects of taxation law.

 “During these challenging economic times, we are more committed than ever to the success of our clients,” said Dennis James. “Jennifer’s technical knowledge and exceptional client service epitomizes Patterson Law’s values of working with clients to meet and exceed expectations and needs.”

 Clients coming first has been the core value of Patterson Law since the firm opened its doors in 1928.  Today, Patterson Law helps clients succeed through a talented team of legal professionals in five offices across Nova Scotia – Truro, Halifax (Downtown), Halifax (Quinn Street), Bridgewater and New Glasgow.
