As a senior executive of a software development firm, I experienced Gil’s skills and knowledge with the SR&ED ITC program personally, and over a number of years. Gil is like a ‘professor’ of SR&ED. He knows it inside and out, keeps up on trends and changes, and has always been able to provide sage and knowledgeable guidance to successful claims content and processes.
