Lavery: In synch with Alexandre Despatie since 2009

The Lavery law firm is pleased to have been a sponsor of the diver Alexandre Despatie for more than three years and to help him achieve his Olympic dream.

Alexandre Despatie’s strength of character is one of the qualities that sets him apart. In 2011, an injury kept him out of competition but he came back strongly in 2012. Recently, he suffered an injury during training in Spain that could have ruined his chances to take part in the London Olympics, which will be his last Olympic Games. Once again, Alexandre Despatie has shown his strength of character and he will participate in the Summer Games.

Managing Partner at Lavery, Élise Poisson points out that the partnership between the firm and a remarkable athlete like Alexandre Despatie is a great privilege. "At Lavery, we feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to support this tremendous athlete. For the past 15 years, Alexandre Despatie has made Quebec and Canada proud, just as much for his exceptional competition results as for his endearing personality", says Élise Poisson.
