  3. A new brand image that reflects Lavery’s ambition

    Today, Lavery is proud to unveil its new brand image. This significant transformation embodies our firm’s desire to drive the growth of organizations that do business in Quebec. Both warm and accessible, the result of this initiative attests to the firm’s uniqueness and its desire to break industry norms by adopting a human and innovative approach based on personalized support. The new visual platform, created by BrandBourg in collaboration with the internal team, was designed to communicate Lavery’s mission, which focuses on partnership with its clients and its closeness to the business community. It combines its current distinctive colours with the contemporary imagery of renowned Quebec illustrator Sébastien Thibault, whose work is featured in prestigious publications such as The New York Times, The Guardian and The Economist. “Our completely renewed signature is both a more accurate reflection of what our firm is today and what it aspires to embody even more in the coming years,” says Anik Trudel, Lavery’s Chief Executive Officer. “This reaffirms our commitment to our clients’ success, which is based on the personalized approach of a competent team that is integrated in a 360-degree approach and is truly attentive to their needs.” Visually expressing the Lavery promise Lavery’s colour palette now plays with the shades of green that already distinguish the firm in the industry. The coral colour brings contrast, originality and warmth. The updated logo retains the friendly, approachable feel of the brand and creates a timeless, strong character.  The green line that accompanies the name Lavery recalls the line on which we affix a signature and thus symbolizes our commitment. The new handwritten signature “Signed Lavery” refers to Lavery’s human side and the personalization of its service.  Furthermore, the removal of the descriptor “Lawyers” that was a part of the previous logo reflects both the presence of a growing number of legal professionals complementary to the practice of law, and the firm’s confidence in its positioning in the business community. “Our visual identity reflects the dynamic nature of our firm and the uniqueness of our positioning. It will help us to leverage digital codes even more effectively, in addition to offering us new options for communicating in an engaging and visual way with our target audiences, both internally and externally,” says Joanne Lajeunesse, Director, Communications and Marketing. The clients surveyed in the course of the project emphasized the innovative, professional, artistic and sophisticated nature of the final result.  A positioning reflecting the image of today’s Lavery Our brand image is based on commitment, experience, value creation and growth, the four main pillars that guide our actions and give meaning to each of the firm’s interventions. Lavery’s promise is a guarantee of loyalty and excellence that is shared for the benefit of our clients, key players in the economy. It is a promise to leverage our talent for their benefit.

  8. COVID-19 – Update on our preventive measures to protect all Lavery team members, clients and business partners

    Dear clients and business partners, In light of recent recommendations from Canadian and Québec authorities, and the progression of the coronavirus epidemic to the pandemic stage, Lavery wishes to inform you of the measures that we have implemented to ensure the safety of our members, limit the spread of the virus within and outside the Lavery network, comply with the official recommendations of the authorities, and ensure the continuity of our business. The safety of our team members, our clients and business partners, as well as that of their families and loved ones, remains our top priority. We would like to offer our thoughts and support to all those who have to deal with the impacts of contamination within their own organizations or among their relations. We would like to assure all of our clients and business partners that we have been monitoring the situation for several weeks, and that a business continuity plan has rapidly been put in place in order to ensure that we maintain the level of service that you expect, particularly in terms of managing the impacts of the spread on your own organization. Lavery’s four offices (Montréal, Québec City, Sherbrooke and Trois-Rivières) remain open and our team members are able to continue operations, whether on site with reinforced sanitary measures or remotely in a secure manner. In summary, here are the preventive measures that we have implemented and will continue to adjust as the situation progresses: All business travel outside Québec, regardless of destination, has been cancelled or postponed until further notice. This includes travel for client meetings or for participation in conferences or other professional events. All personal travel outside Québec, regardless of destination, is subject to the usual recommendations of the official authorities and is subject to precautionary measures (self-isolation or other) before any return to work. All internal events, including training sessions, conferences and any other events organized at the firm, are cancelled until further notice, and participation in events of a professional nature outside the firm (training sessions, symposiums, meetings, receptions, sports and social events, etc.) is not recommended. Participation in events involving more than 25 people is not permitted until further notice.  We have asked our team members to conduct all meetings with clients or business partners by telephone or virtual meeting. Should a client meeting truly need to be held in person on an exceptional basis, our receptionists have been instructed to ask visitors to register so that we can follow up as required. The measures described above are part of a collective prevention effort. Rest assured that we are continuously assessing the adequacy of these measures, that we remain at your service for all your legal needs, including those required to manage this pandemic, and that we will keep you informed as the situation evolves at Lavery.
