A lawyer with exceptional leadership skills, Marie-Pier Baril stands out for her entrepreneurial spirit and her intimate knowledge of the Quebec SME community. She advises an impressive portfolio of clients in the Greater Quebec City area and the Centre-du-Québec region in corporate and business law. When faced with complex situations, she works tirelessly to unite the forces of multiple shareholders to  achieve a common objective.

With a particular focus on corporate governance, Marie-Pier regularly participates in the negotiation and drafting of shareholder agreements and various types of commercial contracts. She has been involved in several tax and estate planning, corporate restructuring, succession and business transfer matters.

A graduate of the Université de Sherbrooke, she received the Barreau du Québec prize and the Dean of the Law Faculty prize for academic excellence and involvement in university life. Since then, she has given several conferences on her areas of expertise, including shareholder relations and financial and estate planning. She has also served on a number of boards, including early childhood and health.  In order to better serve our clients facing estate issues, Marie-Pier has deepened her knowledge in this field, which she is passionate about, by currently completing a Master of Law’s degree in which she is studying the exercise of decision-making power by the trustees of testamentary trusts.

Marie-Pier is also in charge of recruiting students for BCF. She is co-responsible for attracting top talent to lay the groundwork for BCF’s future.
