Lavery Continues Forging Ahead: A Team of Five Labour Law Professionals is Joining the Firm

A team composed of Éric Thibaudeau, Laurence Bourgeois-Hatto, Catherine Deslauriers, Mélanie Desjardins and Cinthia Gauvreau is joining Lavery Lawyers in the Labour and Employment Law group in Montréal and Quebec City.

The integration of Éric Thibaudeau and his team will further consolidate the firm’s leadership in labour law. This latest recruitment is part of our comprehensive approach to providing 360-degree client service and solidifying our position as a growth partner for key players in the Quebec economy.

Nine other professionals joined our ranks during the last quarter, for a total of ten salaried professionals and four partners. This strengthens our legal teams in corporate law, litigation, intellectual property and labour law.

Expertise at the service of our 360° approach, the key to our firm’s growth

The pandemic has shown us that the labour law issues faced by employers affect all sectors of the Quebec economy.

The addition of five seasoned professionals will enhance our employer advisory services, help our clients manage the legal and strategic aspects of employment and expand our firm’s comprehensive service offering in two of our four business centres.

Their cutting-edge expertise, in the field of construction in particular, will help to address the many challenges facing an industry that is foundational to Quebec’s economic recovery, especially where workforce management is involved.

Our firm’s attractiveness and reputation confirmed by the acquisition of exceptional talent

“Lavery’s reputation in labour law is well established. The excellent reputation of its integrated service offer within the business community and its leadership position in a changing industry were determining factors in our decision to join the firm,” says Éric Thibaudeau, partner at Lavery.

“The arrival of Éric, Laurence, Catherine, Mélanie and Cinthia in the extended Lavery family is a testament to the attractiveness of our platform, whose reputation, both in Quebec and outside our local market, rests above all on the acumen of our professionals and the quality of the mandates that our clients entrust to us. We are delighted that they chose Lavery to pursue their careers,” concludes Anik Trudel, CEO of Lavery.
