Lavery is pleased to announce that it has hired three of its articling students as associates. Camille Côté has joined the Business Law group of our Trois-Rivières office. While a law student at the Université de Montréal law faculty, Camille volunteered with Pro Bono Québec on a project to prepare small claims court hearings, organize conferences and mentored students during the articling recruiting process. Blanche Fournier has joined the Litigation and Conflict Resolution group of our Sherbrooke office. She holds a Bachelor of Law degree, internship program, from the Université de Sherbrooke. During her legal studies, Blanche had the opportunity to take part in two professional internships in major financial institutions and in a law firm practising in civil litigation. She has also tutored new law students. William Lacoste has joined the Litigation and Conflict Resolution group of our Montréal office. He obtained his Bachelor’s in both Civil and Common Law from McGill University. During his studies, he worked as the Director of human and material resources at the Legal Information Clinic at McGill, where he was responsible for training and supervising more than 150 student volunteers. “We are very proud to welcome talent like Camille, Blanche and William into the Lavery family. They have distinguished themselves by their quality of work, dedication and ongoing pursuit of excellence,” commented Loïc Berdnikoff, Director of Professional Development.
