Luc endorses a pragmatic vision of the legal practice. He encourages his clients to find a reasonable solution to their factual or legal difficulty early in the process. He entertains a good relationship with his colleagues and the bench. He has, among other activities, acted for employers in collective and individual labour relations and occasionally for managers in dismissal matters. Throughout his practice, Luc has acted before all judicial and administrative tribunals interested in labour matters in the Province of Québec. Over the years, he has advised employers whose main activities are based in Québec, but also in Canada and abroad, as part of mergers or transfer matters. He has developed a deep expertise in the matters related to the notion of independent contractor in the context of financial advisors, representing financial institutions with success in front of administrative and civil courts (Court of Appeal, Superior Court, Canada Tax Court and Labour Board). Luc has also developed an expertise in representing Aboriginal communities (principally the Cree Nation) in labour and employment matters in front the various labour tribunals of federal and provincial jurisdiction. He practises in English and French.
