Catherine Méthot is a member of the firm’s Business Law group, and her practice focuses primarily on business and commercial law. As part of her practice, Catherine negotiates, drafts and revises various legal documents relating to commercial transactions and is regularly called upon to support and advise clients in their commercial and operational activities.
In this capacity, she represents businesses in a wide range of purchase and sale transactions and in the negotiation of many types of commercial agreements, such as distribution, supply or manufacturing agreements.
Catherine holds a Bachelor of Laws and a Specialized Graduate Diploma (DESS) in Business Law from the Université de Montréal and began her career as an articling student at Lavery and then as a lawyer in the Business Law group.
She also worked as legal counsel in litigation. During this period, Catherine continued to develop her skills in mergers and acquisitions and commercial law and specialized in regulatory matters in the pharmaceutical industry, and more particularly in development, manufacturing, licensing, supply, distribution, marketing, clinical trial, research and development, partnership and joint-venture agreements.
Finally, practising within a business enabled Catherine to develop her skills as a business partner for her clients, which she uses to analyze and understand the issues and risks involved in concluding commercial agreements and her clients’ specific legal situations. She is thus well-equipped to give tailored advice for each individual situation.
