“Quand des cabinets d’avocats optent pour l’innovation” by Julie Perreault, Le Journal du Barreau du Québec.

Le Journal du Barreau du Québec quotes Montréal lawyer Éric Bédard in an article on the flexibility and innovation of law firms.

Affordable legal services

“I think that there are two important issues here: the amount of the invoice and foreseeability. Every client wants affordable legal services, but doesn’t like to be surprised by the final invoice,” explains Me Éric Bédard, Fasken Martineau DuMoulin’s Managing Partner for Quebec.

The firm understands the economic reality of a business, especially start-ups, and therefore invested in software that allows clients to have a better overview of their business project. Automating the constitution and organization of a start-up, creating certain contracts, minute books, a virtual data room; the ViaFasken application offers various functions to help clients manage their documentation and follow-up on financing and acquisition transactions. “This technology not only enables us to facilitate the daily operations of small companies, but do it at an affordable cost that suits their budget, due to our monthly payment plan,” observes Me Bédard.
