Annie Bernard's practice focuses on a broad range of complex matters, including construction and class action litigation. She represents clients in almost every sector of the construction industry ranging from owners to general contractors, subcontractors and suppliers on issues involving financing, construction defects, project management, professional liability and breach of contract.

She has also developed expertise in issues relating to invitations to tender, legal hypothecs for construction, as well as the conditions under which permits of the Régie du bâtiment du Québec are issued. In the course of her practice, Annie also prepares and revises contractual documentation, such as the CCDC contract forms, and dealing with bond and co-ownership issues.

She has also been involved in the defence of several class action cases for several clients. Currently, Annie is involved in a class action lawsuit stemming from the Canadian ice storm of 1998.
