4th Edition of “Les sûretés réelles dans le Code civil du Québec” by Louis Payette, Ad. E., Considered a Benchmark

Lavery is proud to mention that the 4th edition of “Les sûretés réelles dans le Code civil du Québec” by Louis Payette, Ad. E. was published in May 2010.

Mr. Payette first published this book in 1994 following the coming into force of the Quebec Civil Code and he has updated it three times. The first and second editions of the book were awarded The Foundation of Legal Research’s Walter Owen Book Prize, which recognizes “excellent legal writing and to reward outstanding new contributions to Canadian legal literature.” This book has become an essential point of reference for lawyers in this field as well as for courts hearing cases on the subject.

The new edition has become essential following legislative amendments made in 2009 with respect to the creation and the maintaining of pledges, the sections added to the Quebec Civil Code relating to the obtainment of security on securities and security entitlements, as well as the evolution of interpretations in doctrine and case law.

“We are very proud of the exceptional contribution to banking law and commercial law Louis Payette offers our clients, his colleagues and the entire legal community,” said Élise Poisson, Managing Partner at Lavery. “His reputation, expertise and commitment contribute to quality of Lavery’s service offering.”

The Best Lawyers in Canada and The Canadian Legal LEXPERT® Directory list Mr. Payette as a leading practitioner in the field of banking law in Canada.
