Being Clever, Together


I'm Laura McLeman and I want to ignite the cross-border community's passion for shared knowledge and professional brilliance.


With two decades of experience in cross-border tax advisory, I've identified three common challenges that most cross-border advisors face:

  1. Building Valuable Cross-border Connections 

  2. Accessing Relevant Cross-border Professional Development

  3. Efficiently Training your Team .


The Clever Firm is designed to be your solution.

Laura McLeman CPA, CA, Founder

We are tackling these challenges head-on, one by one.


We will provide networking opportunities, both in-person and virtually. We're talking about connecting with the best in our industry.


We also will communicate and facilitate technical updates,  through specifically curated cross-border updates, webinars, articles, and roundtable virtual discussions. At our annual cross-border conference,  we won't just scratch the surface, we'll dig deep into the nitty-gritty of technical issues and provide real cross-border specific education. 

Beginning in January, 2024, we will be  delivering knowledge on demand. Our selection of Canadian, US, and cross-border tax courses is here to rescue you from the "time cost" of seasonal training for junior staff. Our basic and intermediate tax and software training courses, will be available anytime, anywhere.

Join us for a more productive, enjoyable, and impactful professional journey.

Membership to our community offers many benefits that cater to both personal and professional growth. Joining us means becoming a part of a supportive network of like-minded individuals, where each member contributes to a collective knowledge pool.
