Gowling Montreal partner elected as fellow of labour and employment college

Thursday, July 19, 2018 @ 11:22 AM | By John Chunn


Luc Deshaies, a partner in Gowling WLG’s Montreal office, has been elected as a fellow of the College of Labor and Employment Lawyers, a rare honour reserved only for the most dedicated and accomplished labour and employment lawyers in North America. Deshaies is the first professional at Gowling WLG to obtain this distinction.

A recognized leader in his field, Deshaies represents employers in complex collective and individual labour relations matters and has appeared before all judicial and administrative labour tribunals in Quebec.

He is a former president of the bar of Montreal, and he is frequently distinguished in a number of prestigious legal publications, including Chambers Canada, Lexpert, The Best Lawyers in Canada and the Who’s Who Legal series.

Based in Annapolis, Md., the College of Labor and Employment Lawyers endeavours to promote excellence, establish professional standards and celebrate achievements in the practice of employment and labour law — as well as to serve as a vital resource for academia, governments, judiciaries and other key audiences.

The installation of fellows will be held on Nov. 10, 2018, in San Francisco, coincident with the American Bar Association's Labor and Employment Law Section’s Continuing Legal Education Conference.
