Fasken partner publishes environmental law book

Reading Time 2 minute read


Montréal (Canada) – Fasken Partner André Durocher published his first solo-authored book, Environmental Class Actions in Canada.

The book is a complete exposé of issues in environmental class action law. Industry by industry, André shows how class actions can or cannot resolve environmental problems. No other publication covers this practice area as exclusively as Environmental Class Actions in Canada.

“I understand the ins and outs of how to operate in environmental law and class action across industries,” said André Durocher, Partner in Fasken’s Montréal office. “My main goal with the publication of this book is to share that experience with my fellow legal practitioners, the judiciary, academia, and the general public.”

“With this book, André brings the benefit of his 40-plus years of legal experience to the readers,” said Éric Bédard, Managing Partner, Québec Region. “With his personal, direct and proactive style, it will undoubtedly be a great resource for clients and professionals in Quebec, Canada and abroad.”

André practises in the areas of class actions, environmental law, energy law, and Indigenous law.
