Firm clients are very loyal and include Grammy-award winners, NHL hockey players, Hollywood sitcom writers, as well as the makers of cheese, beer, video games and beauty brands. The firm clients have come to appreciate (and expect!) kindness, dedication and an exceptional track record from the legal team.

•Conduct applicable legal research and keep abreast of changes and developments re: applicable laws and regulations;
•Assist the Managing Partner with Quebec Bar Trust Accounts, monthly billing charts and related matters;
