Goodbyes at Belleau Lapointe

After many years of resounding professional accomplishments, complicity and camaraderie, fierce battles, landmark pleadings and fruitful negotiations, Daniel Belleau, partner and co-founder of the firm, has chosen to retire from the Belleau Lapointe team.

This team, which he helped build and towards which he has played a much-appreciated role as a mentor, would like to thank him today for the inspiring leadership he has shown and for his undeniable ability to communicate his vision of an efficient, honest and responsible practice of law.

It is with emotion that we say goodbye to Daniel and we wish him the very best in his future endeavours.

Belleau Lapointe, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, is a boutique firm specialized in civil and commercial litigation as well as in class actions, with a solid and respected reputation.

The Belleau Lapointe team is growing

It is with great enthusiasm that we announce the arrival of two new recruits in the Belleau Lapointe team.

Guy-Philippe Bouchard practices in civil and commercial litigation and counts on a solid experience in construction and insurance law. He represents general and mechanical contractors in civil actions of varying degrees of complexity. Having practiced for several years in a multidisciplinary firm offering legal and insurance services, Guy-Philippe has also developed a specialty in coverage and claim management.

Rosalie Jetté joins Belleau Lapointe as a lawyer. Her practice is oriented towards civil and commercial litigation as well as class actions and she is particularly interested in privacy issues. Prior to joining the team, she worked for nearly two years at a major regional firm. She was also a research assistant at the Centre de recherche en droit public and a teaching assistant at the Faculty of Law and the Faculty of Continuing Education of the Université de Montréal.

On the eve of its twentieth anniversary, Belleau Lapointe continues to grow and relies more than ever on the excellence of its lawyers, talented and dynamic litigators, ready to fight or negotiate in the best interests of their clients.
