Bentham IMF has opened a new office in Montreal, headed by former McCarthy Tétrault partner, Pierre-Jérôme Bouchard as investment manager and legal counsel.

Bouchard will oversee Bentham’s efforts to provide financing solutions for the Quebec business and legal community. He will also be assisting in evaluating opportunities across the country and internationally as needed.

He has more than a dozen years of experience litigating commercial litigation and intellectual property (IP) matters on behalf of leading law firms Cravath, Swaine & Moore (2007-2010) and McCarthy Tétrault (2010-2018). He worked on a wide variety of cases at both firms, including product liability, securities fraud, IP, breach of contract and antitrust matters, bankruptcy proceedings, regulatory investigations and arbitrations.

He received his law degree from the Université Laval in 2003 and his master of law degree from Columbia University in 2005.

Before entering private practice, he served as a law clerk to Justice Louis LeBel of the Supreme Court of Canada. Bouchard was called to the Quebec bar in 2006 and to the New York bar in 2007. He is fluent in French and English.
