    I represent my clients before judicial and administrative tribunals, as well as private dispute resolution panels.

    Early in my career, I represented one of the major cities of the Montérégie region in an epic dispute over the danger posed by firearms holsters of on-duty police officers that could be disarmed by suspects.

    An application made to the Commission d’appel des lésions professionnelles (now the Administrative labor tribunal or ‘’TAT’’, in french) generated a lengthy trial of witnesses and experts that resulted in an out-of-court settlement, which was beneficial to my client and the general public safety.

    I then oriented my career towards commercial and real estate litigation. I worked on several disputes between the shareholders ofa same family, whose succession proved to be contentious. I have successfully pleaded up to the Court of Appeal of Quebec in some of those cases and also pleadedvarious cases of oppression between shareholders.

     Throughout the years, I have also represented real estate contractors and developers, as well as shareholders of real estate companies.

     In the Furfaro case (8 PDC inc. c. Furfaro, 2009 QCCS 1451 (CanLII), while the tenant claimed that his default under the lease resulted from his eviction due to the landlord’s decision to change the locks of the business, I succeeded in convincing the Court that the decision to replace the locks in the leased premises was justified, both by the lease itself and by the tenant’s behaviour. Subsequently, the right to the forced change of locks and the right to forced eviction were recognized in other cases (Liu c. 350, 2017 QCCS 447 (CanLII).

     Representing a commercial lease manager, I argued at the Court of Appeal the De Lucia case, where the Court reaffirmed the principle that an accepted lease offer constitutes a binding lease even if a written standard lease has not been signed and the tenant has not taken possession of the leased premises (2425-3726 Québec inc. v. 9172-5234 Québec inc., 2012 QCCA 1110 (CanLII).

     In a judgment rendered in 2016 (1124 Iberville inc. c. Boucherie La Généreuse inc., 2016 QCCS 2040 (CanLII), the Superior Court of Quebec ruled in my favor in a case where the manager I represented sought to obtain a safeguard order to force the tenant not to cease his business operations and to prevent his eviction.

     Particularly, the Court ruled that, in certain circumstances, an eviction amounts to a forced change in the destination of the leased premises, which contravenes the obligations set out in article 1856 of the Civil Code of Quebec. The Court also refused to agree with the tenant, whose argument tried to invalidate the lease’s use clause because the lease would have constituted a contract of adhesion.

     I have successfully applied this principle in several other cases, including one in the Superior Court of Quebec in the case of Michael Rossy (9190-9309 Québec inc. c. Rossy, 2017 QCCS 1669 (CanLII), where the Court ruled that, even in the absence of a continued operation clause, article 1856 of the Civil Code of Quebec can prevent a tenant from ceasing his commercial operations. The case was appealed, but then was settled out of court before the Court of Appeal could rule on the matter.

  • Social Involvement

    Until last year, I was a member of the Board of Directors and Executive committee of the Centre Petite Échelle, an organization that provides support and respite to parents and families of children with autism spectrum disorders.

    I also mentored young women entrepreneurs and professionals in the commercial real estate industry in Montreal through CrewM, an association of women working in this field.

    I contributed, as a supervisor, to the birth and start-up of the Quebec Bar's Legal Clinic, which began its activities in 2022. The clinic offers free legal services to the general population and participates in efforts to make justice more accessible.

    Over the years, I have also been a member of the board of various social and economic organizations, including the executive committee of the South Shore Chamber of Commerce and Industry, the executive board of the Charles Lemoyne Hospital Foundation, the board of directors of the Centre d'accueil de Longueuil, the board of directors of the École des arts et de la scène Nos voix Nos visages and the board of directors of the Fondation des écoles spécialisées Joseph-Charbonneau and Victor Doré in Montreal.
