With more than 175 lawyers and agents, Fasken Martineau’s Montréal office provides a full range of world-class legal services. Our local team offers specialized expertise in all areas of law, and many of our members are ranked as leading practitioners in the top legal publications. We are recognized as one of the most important groups in the city when it comes to litigation, corporate/commercial, labour, employment and human rights, infrastructure, intellectual property and taxation law.
Situated in the province of Québec, professionals in Montréal offer their expertise in a bilingual environment, serving clients in both French and English. Given that Québec is a civil law jurisdiction, we work closely with our offices in Québec City and Paris, providing expertise to civil law countries abroad. Many of our Montréal lawyers and agents are also qualified in common law.
Founded in 1907, our office has been in the community for over a century and has always had strong ties with the Québec business community and head offices located in the province. Named Martineau Walker until the 2000 merger with Fasken Campbell Godfrey and Russell & DuMoulin, our Montréal office is now one of the largest and most important in the city and is the firm of choice for medium- and large- sized companies who have or wish to grow their business in Canada and abroad.

Renovated in 2009, our multipurpose conference center is equipped with cutting-edge technology and can host over 200 people.

Our private legal library, created around 1945, is the largest in Québec, with over 10,000 titles (print, digital and mobile). Our team is composed of legal information professionals and library technicians who average 3,000 legal and business searches per year and monitor over 500 laws and media releases daily. We also offer information alerts to our clients regarding various aspects of legislation or regulation (enactments, amendments, entry into force, etc.)
