Two labour and employment law experts join Heenan Blaikie in Québec



    QUEBEC, Sept. 18 /CNW Telbec/ - Law firm Heenan Blaikie is pleased to
announce that Mr. Jean-François Dolbec and Mr. Gilles Rancourt will be joining
its Québec City group this month.
    Both experts in labour and employment law, they were previously
practicing with another law firm in Québec. Graduates from Laval University,
they also conducted part of their studies at the University of Western
Ontario.
    Jean-François Dolbec has been practicing labour and employment law for
some 15 years. In addition to private practice, he has worked for a major
telecommunications company. This combined expertise gives him the valuable
perspective of working as in-house counsel in addition to developing his
capacity to respond to the needs of a diversified clientele. During his
career, he has experienced all the aspects of labour and employment law:
hiring and dismissal, occupational health and safety, human rights and labour
standards as well as all the issues arising from collective labour relations
including injunctions.
    Gilles Rancourt, who was called to the Bar in 2000, already has a
well-rounded practice. Prior to attending law school, he had obtained a degree
in labour relations. He is a member of the Ordre des conseillers en ressources
humaines et en relations industrielles agréés du Québec, and sits on the
Ordre's regional committee for the Québec-Chaudière Appalaches area. He is a
regular contributor to VigieRT, the Ordre's electronic monthly. He frequently
speaks at information luncheons for human resource professionals, addressing
practical issues in labour relations. Mr. Rancourt also teaches at the Quebec
Bar Admission Course.
    "Heenan Blaikie is an attraction for talented lawyers. Excellence draws
excellence. We are very proud that Jean-François and Gilles, key players in
their field, have decided to join us to provide businesses and organizations
in the Québec area the high-quality services that no other firm can offer",
said Marcel Aubut, O.C., O.Q., Q.C., senior partner with the firm and head of
its Québec office. With nearly 70 people, including some 35 lawyers and
paralegals, our Québec group represents an established and constantly
expanding team.

    Since it was founded in 1973, Heenan Blaikie has been growing steadily
and is now over 425 lawyers strong - over 1,000 people in nine offices in
Quebec, Ontario, Alberta and British Columbia. The firm provides distinguished
services in labour and employment, business law, litigation, taxation,
entertainment and intellectual property.
