On June 20, 2022, the Government of Québec and Plateforme Agora (now doing business as Le Panier Bleu) announced that Le Panier Bleu is transitioning to a private enterprise with the support of Quebec industry leaders.

Béatrice is a member of the firm’s Business Law Group and practices primarily in the area of transactional law, particularly in the area of venture capital. Béatrice obtained a dual degree in civil and common law at McGill University.
After spending time studying abroad, Béatrice Bull obtained a dual degree in civil and common law at McGill University.

Béatrice was then elected President of her association in 2017, after which she oversaw every project and placed more emphasis on the association’s financial health.
She has been passionate about music since she was very young and obtained a double DCS in classical singing before going into the legal field. Béatrice continued to be involved in the artistic world by helping various charity organizations at her university.
