Langlois lawyers announced the addition of three new lawyers to its Montreal office, Romeo Aguilar Perez, Louis Lafleur and Gabrielle Turcotte-Fraser.      

“The addition of these new lawyers to our Montréal office clearly attests to our steady growth, our ability to attract some of the most talented professionals in the market and our firm’s determination to play a decisive role in the success of Quebec businesses,” said Jean-François Gagnon, CEO of Langlois, in a news release.

Perez joins the firm’s labour and employment law group. According to the firm’s press release, he advises and assists clients with the interpretation of collective agreements, grievance arbitrations, matters involving labour relations, labour standards, occupational health and safety, administrative investigations and employment-related litigation files. He is also frequently consulted regarding the handling of work-related psychological or sexual harassment complaints. He has a master’s degree in privacy law pertaining to the use of social networks.  

Lafleur also joins the labour and employment law group. In his practice he primarily advises employers on all matters pertaining to labour and employment law, including issues inherent in both individual and collective labour relations, administrative investigations, occupational health and safety and employment-related litigation. He is also experienced in drafting contracts, as well as legal proceedings presented before courts, administrative tribunals and grievance arbitrators.

Turcotte-Fraser joins the business law group, after having worked for two years as a legal adviser on one of the largest construction sites in North America. Her involvement in the project’s management and operations allowed her to develop competencies in public-private partnerships for infrastructure projects, as well as in construction law and commercial law. Turcotte-Fraser has also been involved in asset management, particularly regarding the acquisition, lease and sale of equipment, assessing risks inherent in a construction project and managing builder’s risk insurance projects.
