Pierre-L. Baribeau recipient of the 2013 pro Bono-Rajpattie-Persaud Award

Lavery is pleased to announce that Mr. Pierre-L. Baribeau, a Labour and Employment Law partner at Lavery, has received the 2013 Pro Bono-Rajpattie-Persaud Award during the Annual Presidential Dinner of the Québec Branch of the Canadian Bar Association (ABC-Québec) that was held on May 23, 2013 at the Hotel Hyatt Regency Montreal.

This award recognizes each year the exceptional contribution of a member of ABC-Québec to the community. Mr. Baribeau’s long-standing community involvement is expressed by his commitment in various foundations and non-profit organizations. He is currently Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Quebec Lung Association and Chairman of the Board of Directors of Boscoville 2000, a troubled youth help centre.

"Pierre Baribeau fully deserves this award handed out by ABC-Québec. Lavery is proud to have such a distinguished lawyer within its ranks. Whether he is representing important clients or doing community work, Pierre always stays true to his values. When a cause is dear to his heart, he wholeheartedly embraces it. For instance, in 2012, he reached the top of Island Peak in the Himalayas (Nepal) that stands at 6 189 m, to raise funds for research on respiratory diseases", said Don McCarty, Managing Partner of the firm.
