Nicolas Charest graduated from McGill University with a joint civil law and common law degree and a minor in art history. He also studied abroad at Université Paris II Panthéon-Assas and Université de Reims. He joined Fasken during the summer of 2017.

Nicolas notably gained experiences in the field of intellectual property law by obtaining a certificate in wine law and by working at an intellectual property law firm, and holding several research and teaching assistantship positions. He continues today to collaborate with a professor on research projects in the areas of property law, secured transactions and jurilinguistics.

In parallel to his academic and professional undertakings, Nicolas is also actively involved in his community, having volunteered for McGill’s Intellectual Property and Information Technology Policy Club, the Confédération des associations des étudiant-e-s en droit civil (CADED), Pro Bono networks, and the McGill Journal of Law & Health.

Passionate about wine and art, Nicolas also enjoys cycling, golf, and squash.
