A Brossard lawyer, Alessandra works mainly in labour and employment law. Prior to joining TCJ, Alessandra practiced with a government agency and an international law firm. She also acted as a consultant and investigator with a multidisciplinary consulting firm composed of lawyers and human resources consultants.
As part of her practice, Alessandra is called upon to advise, assist and represent employers of all sizes, whether unionized or not, in matters of labour, employment and occupational health and safety law, in particular before the common law courts, grievance arbitrators and the Tribunal administratif du travail. In addition, she frequently conducts investigations as an external and independent investigator on behalf of employers under provincial and federal jurisdiction.
Favouring a modern approach to the law, she relies on personalized legal support for her clients and places alternative dispute resolution methods at the heart of her practice, considering them as the first solution before any litigation is brought to court.
