Our firm acts regularly in large, complex and high-stakes litigation or arbitration, in matters of vital importance to our clients. We are there to counsel and to  represent our clients, and to defend their interests, whether before the courts of justice or arbitration tribunals, or by way of negotiation or mediation. 


We act in many cases where defamatory statements have been made against our clients. We have developed a specialized practice in the field of the liability of the media and the press.

Among our recent files: Saputo v. Gesca (500-17-041668-081), Saputo v. The Globe and Mail (500-17-041666-085), Péladeau v. Lafrance (500-17-035232-076), Groupe TVA v. Gesca (500-17-043263-089) and Chiara v. Vigile Québec (500-17-063802-113).
