On Monday, November 29, 2010, a new financial organization called Finance Montreal was officially launched. Gérard Coulombe, partner at Lavery, was part of the temporary committee for the development and set up of this organization, which comprises, as founding members, the major players in the Quebec financial industry.
Finance Montreal’s mandate is to stimulate the creation and development of financial enterprises in Montreal specifically, and Quebec in general. It aims to identify, support and promote promising and innovative initiatives that benefit the financial sector. Finance Montreal will leverage the mutual co-operation of its members and a close relationship with universities and management schools in order to support the development of the financial sector of Montreal and Quebec.
With this in mind, Lavery is proud to announce that Valérie Boucher, lawyer at Lavery, was named Secretary of Finance Montreal.
