“L’opinion du client” by Emmanuelle Gril, CBA National magazine

CBA National magazine quotes Montréal lawyer, Antoine Aylwin, in an article about restrictions on the use of testimonials.

“We might ask whether there is not some disconnect between these rules and the reality of new technologies that allow individuals to offer comments, even unsolicited, on the services they receive. While it is relatively easy for Mr. and Mrs. Everybody to assess the quality of a plumber’s work, the same cannot be said for the work done by a professional,” in the opinion of Mtre Antoine Aylwin, CIPP/C, a partner at Fasken.

“Of course, a client can judge how quickly their lawyer returns their call, or even the quality of the support they received, but does a client have the necessary skills to assess the legal strategy adopted?” notes Mtre Aylwin, who believes that there is a certain basis for the standard established by section 145.
