Gowling WLG announced that Marc Tremblay and Stefan Nasswetter have joined its business law group as a partner and associate, respectively, based in the firm’s Montreal office.

According to Gowling WLG’s press release, Tremblay and Nasswetter both come from a large Quebec law firm where they worked on a number of corporate transactions.

A professional engineer and lawyer, Tremblay has experience in mergers and acquisitions (M&A), as well as the financing of private corporations — with an emphasis on the tech and telecommunications sectors.

Tremblay complements his M&A experience with knowledge of transactions specific to the information technology and manufacturing sectors, including with respect to technology development, licensing, systems integration, technology transfers, strategic alliances, joint ventures and service outsourcing agreements.

Tremblay has represented several major Canadian companies in multi-billion-dollar transactions. 

Prior to beginning his legal career, Tremblay worked as a professional engineer for both an engineering consulting firm and one of the largest mining companies in the world, as well as in major national firms in Canada.

Nasswetter’s practice focuses primarily on joint ventures, strategic alliances, M&A and financing.

He became a member of the Quebec bar in 2013, and he obtained his law degree from the University of Québec in Montréal. He also completed a master’s degree in business law at Université de Montréal and earned a degree in commerce and business administration from Concordia University (John Molson School of Business).

“We are delighted to welcome Marc and Stefan to our team in Montreal,” said Pierre Pilote, Gowling WLG’s Montreal office managing partner. “They both bring extensive skill and experience to their roles and will help us provide even greater value to our clients at home and abroad.”
