I have been a partner at Donati Maisonneuve since 2007, after having been partner at a large Montreal law firm. I have been a member of the Quebec Bar since 1990 after obtaining my law degree from Université Laval.

I maintain a true passion for my work, which consists mainly in defending businesses or individuals, including primarily insurance companies, professionals and financial institutions, within the context of proceedings brought against them.

In each case I am entrusted with, I maintain close ties with my clients and I strive to achieve the objectives that we establish together in an effective and professional manner.

Although my practice leads me constantly to plead before all court jurisdictions of Quebec, as well as before disciplinary committees in the areas of insurance and finance, I promote the search for negociated solutions if the case lends itself to this alternative. I then make every effort to develop negotiation strategies that will allow the parties to quickly bring an end to their dispute.

I also accompany my clients in the delivery of loss prevention training, mainly in the areas of insurance, civil and professional liability, manufacturer’s liability, and the liability of financial institutions. Moreover, I am often asked to speak on various topics, which change over the years and with the state of current affairs.

I also have management experience and have sat on various boards and committees including the Insurance and Civil Litigation Committee of the Canadian Bar’s Quebec Branch, which I chaired, in addition to having been the treasurer of the Young Bar Association of Montreal.

Finally, I represent the firm within the Risk Management Counsel of Canada(RMC), a national association of independent law firms that work together to resolve interprovincial issues in insurance law.
