    I have always found business successions to be particularly stimulating. These types of transactions often involve corporate reorganization and other challenges that give me the chance to use my corporate law experience so that my clients can be confident that their businesses will continue to grow after the transfer.

  • Social Involvement

    I have always believed in the benefits of sporting activities for both the body and mind. For this reason, I am involved with the Fédération québécoise d’athlétisme as an official and I have actively participated in organizing international track and field competitions in Sherbrooke, such as the 2003 World Youth Championships.
