I have a particular expertise in health law which allows me to approach each file with an in-depth knowledge of the health and social services sector and to assist our clients in this vast and exciting field.
I am also interested in governance issues related to the organization and functioning of public administration and the rules governing the control of the powers of the state and its various decentralized bodies.
Social involvement has always been a big part of my life. Whether it is through a mandate on a board of directors or a committee or through the realization of pro bono mandates, it is for me a privileged way to accompany people or organizations in the defense of their rights or to collaborate on important projects for the well-being of the community.
