We are pleased to announce that our partner André Ryan has been named Advocatus Emeritus (Ad. E.) by the Barreau du Québec this year.

Each year, the Barreau du Québec awards the honorary distinction of Advocatus Emeritus to members who distinguish themselves by the excellence of their professional career, their contribution to the profession and their exceptional impact on their social and community environment which has reflected on the legal profession.

A commercial law practitioner, he advises clients on commercial litigation, corporate governance, media relations, and crisis management, as well as on the negotiation of national and international strategic agreements and partnerships. He has acquired special expertise representing parties before commissions of inquiry, defending class actions, and advising in matters of shareholders disputes.

Very involved in the legal community, André chaired the Meritas network, a group of 7,500 lawyers in 95 countries. André is a member of BCF’s Board of Directors. He is co-head of the firm’s Class Actions Defence team and is also Chairman of the Le Devoir daily newspaper’s Board of Directors since 2017.
