Jocelyn Auger advises technology companies and start-ups on commercialization, intellectual property protection, financing, privacy and data protection as well as cybersecurity. With over twenty years of experience as a business executive and lawyer, he combines a detailed knowledge of law with a deep understanding of the realities, challenges, and dreams of innovative companies.

A member of BCF from the early days, Jocelyn spent nearly five years starting in 2008 as Vice President, Legal for Enerkem, a fast-growing energy technology company. There, he gained a different perspective and new experience in practising law. Since returning to the firm, he assists our clients with licensing, joint ventures, corporate finance, mergers and acquisitions, and various business transactions.

Jocelyn’s expertise and experience also are a valuable asset in the deployment and success of BCF Imagine, a support program for innovative start-ups of which he is co-manager, and BCF Ventures, a venture capital fund aimed at financing start-ups at the pre-seed stage.

Jocelyn Auger serves as Honorary Consul of Sweden in Montreal.
