Guy Tremblay is a Consulting Partner at BCF. Over the years, Guy has built a reputation for excellence in labour and employment law. His extensive experience was acquired before the Quebec Labour Relations Board, grievance arbitration boards and common law courts.

A seasoned negotiator and shrewd strategist, he has been a key player in many labour disputes affecting private companies, and regularly takes part in concluding collective agreements.

He sits on a few boards of directors and was President of the Canadian Association of Counsel to Employers in 2011-2012.
