After having practised with large and medium law firms, Ms. Guylaine Lacerte established her business and developed an innovative business model that offers her clientele a direct source of varied professional services which she supervises and coordinates. This approach not only allows her clients to obtain services that are out of her primary field of competence, but it also ensures that their expectations and objectives are met.

Known for her efficacy, her creativity in finding practical solutions and her ability to quickly understand and take charge of a case, Guylaine plays a key role for her clients as she creates a strong and lasting partnership with them.

While supported by a group of legal consultants, Guylaine principally works in the areas of labour and employment law, civil law and administrative law. She mainly represents employers, and her law firm fully covers all the aspects of this field of expertise and more. (click here to know more about this)

Guylaine was called to the Québec Bar in 2006. She also obtained a bachelor’s degree in Law (LL. B.) from Université Laval in 2005 and a certificate in administration in 2008 from the University of Calgary.

.

Passionate about sports and training, Guylaine also specialized throughout the years in sports law. Her presence and involvement in the sports community enabled her to build an important client and business network and allowed her to manage the legal cases of the North American Hockey League (NAHL).

Guylaine is also involved with the newcomers in the sector and supports their initiatives, mainly those from the Department of Law of Université Laval and the Business Administration students of Champlain St. Lawrence College.

Her interpersonal skills and her ability to communicate in front of an audience allows Guylaine to offer and participate in conferences and training courses, particularly on labour and employment law issues.
