We offer a full range of professional law services ranging from legal advice to strategic support, in all legal remedies, including in particular all types of extraordinary remedies such as injunctions, appeals for judicial review and the motion for declaratory judgment, recourse in matters of illegal exercise of a profession, access to the profession and disciplinary law. More specifically, our expertise focuses on:

  • Legal consultation, strategic support, and legal opinions with the various players involved in professional orders (general management, board of directors, executive committee, all statutory and permanent committees, office of the syndic and syndic ad hoc);
  • Representations before the courts of original general jurisdiction in the context of extraordinary appeals (injunctions, appeals for judicial review and requests for a declaratory judgment);

Under the leadership of the late André Gauthier, Bâtonnier of Quebec, our firm has developed cutting-edge expertise in supporting and representing many professional orders and self-regulatory organizations whose primary function is the protection of the public.

Beyond traditional legal services, we have substantial experience with professional orders and are aware of their concerns and the current issues they are experiencing. We know their inner workings and their history in many ways.

Due to our close relationship with many professional orders and self-regulatory organizations, we can provide high value-added services that are not disembodied.

This intimate knowledge of orders allows us to offer a range of professional legal services as well as advice and strategies that are adapted to the needs of organizations ensuring the protection of the public.

Our services are part of the values that we advocate and apply on a daily basis, namely integrity, transparency and thoroughness. It is what the orders expect and is what we deliver.
