On November 16, 2020, Audrey Gibeault, a partner in the firm’s Business Law group, received the Rising Stars Leading Lawyers Under 40 award from Lexpert, in recognition of her contribution to the growth of key players in the economy.
This award pays tribute to lawyers under 40 who are considered rising stars in Canada’s legal community. The winners are selected based on rigorous and well-defined criteria: professional achievements, leadership, contribution to the profitability of the firm, keen business sense, vision, training and team work.
In addition to being a lawyer and having a Master’s degree in Taxation, she is also a chartered accountant, giving her a much broader perspective as a multi-disciplinary advisor.
As a legal partner and trusted business advisor, she assists clients in planning and implementing complex and innovative commercial, corporate and tax structures. Her clients are loyal to her and entrust her with their most important transactions, including acquisitions, the sale of their businesses, implementation of profit-sharing plans for their employees, creation of discretionary family trusts and estate planning.
