“Des nouvelles des grands cabinets d’avocats” by Jean-François Venne, The Canadian Press

Les Affaires quotes Montréal lawyer, Éric Bédard, in an article on current news from Quebec’s big law firms.

Fasken is one of the first founding members of the Global Legal Blockchain Consortium, whose goal is to promote the adoption of blockchain technology in the business of law. “We are improving the technologies we offer to clients,” said Éric Bédard, managing partner for Quebec. “Two things we have added are Kira, which is contract analysis software based on deep learning, and version 2 of our Via Fasken portal, dedicated to interactive relations with our clients.”

Fasken also supports technology start-ups. “These small enterprises supply globally,” Mr. Bédard said. “They need multidisciplinary services, such as intellectual property, transactions, etc.”
