Lavery is pleased to welcome two new members to its Trois-Rivières and Québec offices
: Justine Chaput and Kevin Desjardins.
Justine joins our Labour and Employment Law group. She assists employers in all areas of labour and employment law, in particular hiring and termination, labour standards, disciplinary measures and human rights and freedoms in the workplace. She also develops and reviews employment contracts, company policies and various documents related to the employment relationship.
"I chose to join Lavery because of the firm's values and its corporate culture where community involvement and teamwork are prized. From the first time I spoke with members of the firm, I felt an undeniable concordance between my values and theirs. I saw open-mindedness and positive and human leadership. I'm very excited to join a firm that successfully combines excellence, passion and professionalism while taking the growth and well-being of its employees to heart. I'm confident that I've found excellent mentors, and I look forward to working with them."
Kevin joins our Litigation and Dispute Resolution group. He works mainly in civil and commercial litigation. Prior to joining the firm, he articled with the public service, where he represented various ministries before civil and administrative tribunals.
"By choosing Lavery, I am joining an organization renowned for its litigation expertise, the high quality of its mandates and the support offered to young lawyers. The dynamism of the team makes Lavery an ideal firm for professional growth. Having said that, it is the great cordiality of the partners and members of the firm that quickly convinced me that this was the place of choice to develop my practice. "
