Les Affaires quotes Montréal lawyer Éric Bédard in an article on top law firms.
Even though the numbers remained and should remain stable, “2016 was a year of growth”, commented Éric Bédard, Managing Partner for the Quebec region. Fasken Martineau’s strategy is to acquire new partners “in targeted regions and areas of expertise”, explained Mtre Bédard.
“Our advantage is that we can offer comprehensive services that take into account every aspect of the challenges faced by entrepreneurs, since it never involves only one part of the law. We assign clients multidisciplinary teams”, remarked the Managing Partner.
Fasken Martineau’s clients range from “large corporations, medium ones but also small businesses, in particular rapidly developing ones in technology and health”, noted Mtre Bédard.
It is precisely for this start-up clientele that the firm, which “invests considerably in technology”, launched its ViaFasken platform last fall.
