Responding to a statement of offence must be carefully considered and measured. Entering a guilty plea can have a significant impact on your business operations.
Our approach goes far beyond the regulatory law. It allows us to anticipate the pitfalls as soon as the statement of offence is issued. In fact, some of our criminal law professionals are tax specialists, while others have expertise in environmental or municipal law. Their combined strengths lie in the 360-degree vision they have of the consequences of a statement of offence and a guilty plea on your business.
Our extensive experience in regulatory infractions and penalties covers administrative, municipal, tax, environmental law as well as professional, occupational health and safety and construction law. We assist not only businesses but also their directors, who are most often affected by the infraction in question. Thus, whether it is a disagreement with the Autorité des marchés financiers, the Régie du bâtiment du Québec, the Autorité des marchés publics or any other public authority, our lawyers will defend your business's interests from the negotiation stage to the court proceedings, including support during the internal investigation.
