Norton Rose Fulbright announced that Charles Taschereau, a litigation partner in Quebec City, has been appointed justice of the Court of Quebec by the provincial government.

Olga Farman, managing partner in Quebec City, said: “We congratulate Charles on this well-deserved and tremendous career achievement. Our firm was fortunate to be able to count on him for 18 years and he will be missed.”

Taschereau joined Norton Rose Fulbright in 2001 after a few years in private practice and became partner in 2010.

According to the firm’s press release, during his tenure at the firm, Taschereau’s practice focused primarily on construction, engineering and infrastructure law. He represented owners, contractors, engineers, manufacturers and other stakeholders in the construction industry, in a variety of disputes before the courts or arbitration tribunals.

His advice was frequently sought in connection with the drafting of construction contracts and tender documents, in particular with relation to government rules and regulations introduced to ensure integrity in public contracting.

Taschereau earned a bachelor of common law from Queen’s University (1999) and a bachelor of civil law from the University of Sherbrooke (1996). He was called to the Quebec bar in 1998.
