Catherine Cloutier is an associate in our Insurance Law Group. Her practice focuses on insurance litigation, more specifically on construction and torts cases.

Catherine joined our Insurance Law Practice Group in 2021, after completing her articling for the Ontario Bar with a boutique law firm in Montréal. Previously, Catherine had acquired a diversified legal experience as a student with the Legal Affairs department of Quebec’s Caisse de dépôt et placement and with CDPQ Infra — Projet Réseau Express Métropolitain. She also worked on commercial property projects with a medium-sized law firm in England, and acted as a hearings clerk in commercial arbitrations.

Prior to her legal education, Catherine studied nutrition, which allowed her to acquire and develop public education skills, to develop approaches tailored for each client and persistent professional thoroughness. Parallel to her legal practice, Catherine has been a nutritionist-dietitian since 2013, working with a private clinic. Drawing from her legal skills to contribute to that facet of her professional activity, Catherine sits on the board of directors of the Ordre professionnel des diététistes du Québec.
