Julia Kwinter Senior Manager Victoria +1 250 383 4191

As a Director of the Grant Thornton Advisory practice in Victoria, I split my time between optimizing shareholder value, executing deals, managing business controversy and conflict, and consulting to owner-managed businesses.

I joined Grant Thornton in 2018, having spent over 15 years providing advisory and assurance services to a wide range of public companies, privately-held businesses, public sector organizations and not-for-profit organizations.

In the Supreme Court of British Columbia I qualified as an expert in accounting, forensic accounting and business valuations—and my expertise has been used to resolve countless business disputes. In particular, I’ve offered dispute advisory services in the areas of accounting standards and practices, damage quantification, divorce proceedings, financial modelling, forensic accounting, expropriations, personal injury, shareholder disputes and more.

Every day, I strive to offer strategic, practical advice to help my clients navigate complex financial matters. For owner-managed businesses, this can often mean filling a need for C-suite services—either on a temporary or part-time basis. I also support my clients in the areas of financial modelling, system implementations and general financial consulting—as well as offer countless other services.

Since graduating from the University of Victoria with a Bachelor of Commerce degree, I’ve earned the Chartered Professional Accountant (CPA, CA) designation, came second place on the Chartered Business Valuator (CBV) entrance exam, been credentialed as a Collaborative Divorce Financial Specialist and am Certified in Financial Forensics (CFF) with the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants.

Outside of work, you can find me volunteering as the treasurer and board member for the West Coast Legal Education and Action Fund (LEAF), as well as the treasurer and board member of the Craft Council of British Columbia.
