It is with great sadness that the Cain Lamarre family wishes to inform you of the death of Me. François Rouette, an equity partner and head of the transportation law team, on the evening of March 12th.
Me. Rouette was a leader in transportation law in Quebec and in North America, as demonstrated by the recognition that he received over the years from both his peers and the transportation industry.
Truly enthusiastic about the industry, Me. Rouette communicated his passion throughout his career by teaching, publishing, and speaking at conferences about transportation law. He also co-authored the book L’encadrement légal du transport routier par véhicules lourds au Québec.
Me. Rouette was a sought-after speaker for his humour, intellect, and legal knowledge.
Beyond his practice and professional distinctions, Me. Rouette distinguished himself over the years through his involvement with young lawyers in our firm as well as in the Quebec sports community.
The entire team at Cain Lamarre has come together in this difficult time to offer our deepest condolences to his family, colleagues, and friends.
