Kevin Wong, Partner with Stonecracker Scientific Law, will speak about an approved Canadian Revenue Agency program called R&D Shift. Kevin created this new program to multiply investment dollars and provide a rapid avenue for required partnership.  This program enhances the use of investment and intellectual property from the innovation stage through to commercialization.  The objective remains to support the acceleration of technology while providing a unique opportunity for knowledge capital to be fully utilized.

About Kevin Wong

In 2004, Kevin founded the Stonecracker Scientific Legal Network in Calgary, Alberta. As a solicitor, a founder of several technology companies, entrepreneur, and a veteran enterprise software developer, Kevin first encountered the Scientific Research & Experimental Development (SR&ED) program in Canada in 1993, and the UK’s R&D Tax Credit Programme since 2008. Since then, he has filed many millions of dollars worth of SR&ED and R&D Tax Credit claims, in a wide array of industries, on behalf of taxpayers in Canada and the UK.

Throughout his years of experience, Kevin developed a unique perspective of the SR&ED program from being simultaneously an inventor, taxpayer, business owner and solicitor. Through this perspective, he realized a driving need for the creation of an SR&ED/R&D Tax Credit-focused law firm. This need was, in fact, unmet up until Stonecracker’s founding in 2004. Kevin is licensed as a Barrister and Solicitor in Alberta, Canada and is admitted as a Solicitor in England and Wales.
