Montreal group becomes one of the largest in the province of Québec
MONTREAL, Sept. 30, 2015 /CNW/ - National law firm, Miller Thomson LLP has recruited five leading Québec construction lawyers to its Montreal group. Partners Guy Gilain LL.L. and Jasmin Lefebvre LL.M., as well as associates Yannick Forget, Philip Thibodeau and Gerry Argento have joined the firm from De Grandpré Chait, making the combined team one of the largest groups dedicated to construction law in the province of Québec.
"This is a very significant event for construction law in Québec," said Louis-Michel Tremblay, co-chair of the firm's Montreal construction practice. "We have brought together the top practitioners in the field under one roof, resulting in a team with unparalleled reach within the industry. The benefit for our clients will be substantial."
Miller Thomson's construction group provides strategic advice to a wide range of clients, including public and private owners, general contractors, subcontractors, design professionals including architects, engineers, real estate and project developers, material suppliers, and insurers. The firm's lawyers also regularly act for institutional lenders, bank and non-bank lenders and borrowers in both traditional and alternative delivery projects.
"Our approach has always been to seek solutions – to solve problems for our client," said Guy Gilain. "It is this business-minded approach to litigation that we share with our new colleagues at Miller Thomson."
"Our decision to move to Miller Thomson was strategic and focused on full development of our practices and the reinforcement of our services toward our clients," said Jasmin Lefebvre. "While our majority focus will remain on the Québec market, we see substantial benefit working within a national framework."
Miller Thomson has more than 80 lawyers with direct and relevant experience in all aspects of construction and infrastructure in its 11 offices across Canada.
