Founded in 1952, the Montréal office was one of the first French Canadian commercial law firms to offer services to the Montréal business community. Originally located in Old Montréal, it was also one of the first law firms to move uptown to establish itself in the centre of what has become Montréal’s downtown business district.
Early on, the Montréal office established itself as a leader in servicing business organizations in the fields of financial services, construction, insolvency and real estate. It quickly grew to represent important leading Québec business organizations.
As the Québec market burgeoned, the firm expanded and became well recognized, offering full services responding to the legal needs of the province’s new economy.
In the last decades, the firm grew to represent the leaders of Québec’s thriving economy and participated and assisted its clients in the economic development of the province. During the 1990s, the Montréal office established a vast network of relationships in Canada, the United States, Mexico and across Europe.
2005 to present
Following its merger with Miller Thomson in 2005, the Montréal office has become an integral part of a national major law firm. To allow for continued growth and enhancement of services offered to its extensive network of clients, the Montréal office moved in 2013 to the modern 1000 de la Gauchetière building.
