Langlois lawyers, LLP announced that an agreement has been reached with law firm Fraticelli Provost to unify their respective practices.

The majority of the members of Fraticelli Provost will consequently be moving to the Montreal office of Langlois lawyers effective Sept. 1, 2017, and will continue their practice under the name Langlois lawyers,LLP.

The 13 individuals involved consist of the following lawyers, Richard R. Provost, Jean-François Vézina, David C. Roux, Régine Chanoine, Béatrice Boucher, Pascale Boucher Meunier and Karl Jérôme; assistants Louise Brisebois, Sylvie Douville, Chantal Mailhot and Jocelyne Proulx; paralegal Kathleen Baldin; and student Alex Reid.

This unification considerably increases the firms’ service offering to clients and potential clients, as well as the operational capacity of the two firms, particularly in the practice areas of insurance law, construction-related litigation and professional liability. It also dovetails with the strategic development plan of Langlois lawyers, which calls for bolstering its team of legal professionals by recruiting the most talented practitioners in the legal services market, and cements its reputation as a leader in the Quebec business community.

“We quickly realized that we have strong affinities with our colleagues at Langlois lawyers, primarily our shared business culture based on the strength of interpersonal relations, the synergies of our respective areas of expertise, and our common concern to offer personalized service tailored to the needs of our clients,” said Provost, senior partner and founding member of Fraticelli Provost.

“Through this unification, our firm has increased its footprint in accordance with our strategic growth strategy in an increasingly sophisticated legal services market. Moreover, it is a privilege to be associated with lawyers whose acknowledged experience and enviable reputation represent significant assets for Langlois lawyers,” added Jean-François Gagnon, the firm’s chief executive.
