A Montreal lawyer working in real estate law since the beginning of her practice, Manon has developed experience in the drafting, translation and interpretation of various contracts, including commercial leases, construction contracts and service contracts.
Administrative law, professional and disciplinary law, prosecution for illegal practice and civil litigation are also Manon’s main areas of practice.
She represents unions from a number of professional orders in disciplinary complaints against professionals, advises members of professional inspection committees on various matters and also advises the officers of professional orders on diverse administrative and legislative issues, such as matters concerning the drafting and interpretation of legislation, governance and ethics.

I advise a dozen professional orders and I regularly represent them before the various judicial and administrative tribunals. I accompany many companies, individuals and important public bodies in litigious and non-contentious cases.
I focus my practice on conflict prevention, an element that motivates me particularly in the practice of my profession. In that sense, listening to the needs of customers is essential.
I am very involved in my community and in non-profit organizations for educational, sporting, charitable and artistic purposes. I firmly believe that all citizens, especially the poor and vulnerable, should have access to sports, cultural and artistic services. A healthy society must include the arts and community organizations. In that sense, the values that are most dear to me are mutual aid, reciprocity and solidarity, aiming for diversity and inclusion in society.
I am a member of the Boards of Directors of the Laval Symphony Orchestra, the Music Mill, and the YMCA Park Local Advisory Council. I also sit on the Board of Directors of the Lajoie School Foundation and participate in the Pluralisme Outremont group to organize activities that focus on diversity and the inclusion of cultural communities.
I have also been a member of the Barreau de Montréal's Disciplinary and Professional Law Committee for two years.
