Lavery, through its Lavery GO inc. Program and Lavery Capital group makes an aggregate $25,000 donation ($5,000 annually over five years) to Fondation Montréal inc., while supplying the services of five volunteer-lawyers to act as coaches over the same period. In addition to Guillaume Lavoie, a business law partner, and Louis Charette, a litigation partner at Lavery, both long time volunteers at the Fondation, the following lawyers will lend a hand to the Fondation’s initiatives, which include supporting start-up businesses and awarding grants to new entrepreneurs:
- Nicolas Joubert, labour, employment and immigration law partner;
- Marie-Hélène Jolicoeur, labour and employment law partner; and
- Judith Houle-Couture, business law associate.
This donation and this volunteering follow a well-established tradition of Lavery of support to the development of entrepreneurship. While the Lavery GO inc. Program provides start-ups with a unique, personalized and affordable program allowing them to access a full range of legal services at competitive prices taking in account their reality, the Lavery Capital group is a key partner of venture capital fund managers who allow these start-ups to achieve exceptional growth. Through their support to the Fondation, the Lavery GO inc. Program and Lavery Capital are therefore able and proud to expand further their contribution to the development and growth of Québec start-ups.
