Criminal and disciplinary law
Our team will advise you and help you find a strategy adapted to your needs.
Our priority is to accompany your company efficiently to the next step.
Acting to minimize risk.
Whatever the nature of the intervention required, we provide diligent support, intellectual rigour and tailored advice to companies, directors and officers in matters of criminal law and to professionals in matters of disciplinary law.
We represent companies, directors and officers in the management or contestation of search warrants, production orders and wiretaps; we assist you in conducting internal investigations; we defend against criminal prosecutions, negotiate complex multi-jurisdictional settlement agreements and facilitate cooperation with Quebec and Canadian governmental and police authorities.
We also advise and represent professionals (engineers, veterinarians, notaries, dentists, opticians, optometrists, certified professional accountants, lawyers, nurses, etc.) who are the subject of a disciplinary investigation or complaint by the syndic of their professional order. Our disciplinary law services can provide you with a complete and rigorous defence and we can advise you on your rights. Our intervention can help reduce, through negotiation, the sanction and the number of counts in the disciplinary complaint.
