MEET THE TEAM
Practicing Law for over 15 years has made George an expert at what he does. He earned his Masters of Taxation from the University of Waterloo and gained the expertise he needed at a Tier 1 national law firm before shifting his focus to small businesses.
Like a lot of things, Monarch Tax Law started out simple - and we're trying our best to stay that way. We are a small, family-run law firm that understands the need for growth and versatility.
George Craven left the realm of big law in 2011, when he established his own practice aptly named "Craven Tax Law". The law firm then moved to a convenient location near downtown Calgary, changing it's name to Monarch Tax Law in the process.
Since then, Monarch has grown and developed into one of the most innovative law firms in Canada - and we want to share that innovation with you.
