Marianne Desrochers joined BCF in summer 2010 as a student. Having completed her articling, Marianne is now working as a lawyer in the business and tax law teams of our Montreal office.

Marianne’s practice is primarily composed of corporate reorganizations and Canadian tax planning mandates aimed at assisting a clientele of entrepreneurs and executives in the various stages of the evolution of their businesses. In this context, Marianne creates structures to optimize the tax consequences resulting from the sale and purchase of businesses, business transfers and key employee incentive plans.

In addition, Marianne actively participates in the planning of tax structures for asset protection which often include the creation of various types of trusts. She has also developed a knowledge of the various tax implications relating to the incorporation by professionals of their practices.
