On November 20, Nathalie Gagnon, a partner at BCF specializing in mergers and acquisitions, received one of Canada’s most coveted and prestigious legal awards, Lexpert Rising Stars: Leading Lawyers Under 40. This award is considered by many in the legal community to be one of the most important in the country.

The award was well-deserved. Through her proactive approach, Ms. Gagnon builds strong relationships with her clients, listening carefully to their needs and identifying the core issues of a transaction. She brings an extraordinary amount of energy to all her files. She is also co-leader of BCF’s Mergers and Acquisitions team and plays a key role in the firm’s growth.

Nathalie Gagnon believes in giving back to the community. She is a member of the board of directors of Quebec Youth Foundation and is President of the organizing committee for the Bal de la Saint-Valentin, which raised $630,000 in 2014 to help troubled youth. Next year she will be in charge of fundraising for the Foundation.

Through her total commitment to her clients, Nathalie Gagnon hopes to help Quebec entrepreneurs succeed. BCF is proud to have a lawyer with such a strong sense of leadership and ethics. Like her colleague Pascale Dionne, who won the award last year, Ms. Gagnon proves that a different approach to business law can work.
