We created GBC Légal in order to satisfy the strategic objectives of our clients and represent their interests with vigour and efficiency, both through judicial litigation and arbitration, as well as through alternative modes of conflict resolution such as mediation.

Our team brings together experienced attorneys that have a decades-long experience in civil and commercial litigation, insolvency and bankruptcy law, business and corporate affairs as well as commercial arbitration. We act on behalf both of corporate and individual clients before the courts of Québec, the Federal Court and the Supreme Court of Canada and have been involved in complex files of national scope over the past thirty years, creating significant jurisprudence that has impacted the practice of law in Québec and Canada.

We have also never forgotten the importance of being attentive to the needs of our clients in order to better accompany them throughout the legal process. The creation of a personalized relationship between lawyer and client is at the heart of our vision of the practice of law.
