Lavery is a leading full-service law firm with 175 lawyers. A respected member of Quebec's legal community for more than 90 years, we are our province’s largest independent corporate law firm. A key area of our practice is business law, and we have developed an expertise in virtually every aspect of this sector.
While we provide a comprehensive range of legal services to an impressive domestic and international clientele, a significant part of our practice lies in the advisory and representation services which we provide to other Canadian and foreign law firms. Our firm is proud of its sterling reputation as a provider of practical, cost effective expert legal advice, without compromising efficiency or excellence, to enable our clients, and thus ultimately your clients, to meet their objectives.
The fact that we are an independent firm based in Quebec provides for, among other things, far greater flexibility in the work we are able to undertake for other law firms, with minimal potential for conflict of interest.
In Quebec the Civil Code has a pervasive influence on all relationships, and specific advice should always be sought regarding any transaction with a Quebec connection. Lavery will elucidate the subtleties of the Civil Code for you, and assist you and your clients in navigating the Quebec legal landscape so that appropriate and timely decisions may be taken with confidence.
Moreover, several members of our team hold Common Law degrees or have been called to the Bars of other provinces.
We look to put our knowledge and other resources to work for the benefit of our colleagues from other jurisdictions and their clients, in order to facilitate their access to the Quebec market.
The Civil Code must often be interpreted and applied in conjunction with a wide range of other legislation when contemplating any given transaction.
For instance, the significant impact of the Charter of the French language, legislation unlike any other in Canada, must always be taken into account when entering into any contractual agreement or business venture in the province of Quebec.
We are in a privileged position to assist in ensuring that all Quebec aspects of the mandate conferred upon you by your client will be fulfilled.
