Construction

The figures in recent years show that the construction industry remains one of the key activities in Quebec: its capital expenditures represent more than 10% of the GDP, it generates a monthly average of over 250,000 jobs, or 1 out of 20 positions, and includes thousands of active employers.

Our legal professionals serve the various stakeholders in the construction industry in the context of numerous mandates including debt collection, contractual claims, registration or cancellation of legal hypothecs, and drafting and reviewing service agreements. We advise contractors, architects, engineers, suppliers, businesses, institutions and individuals. We offer our clients the complementary expertise of our team both in pre-project transactions and contentious situations.

We Understand the Construction Industry

We know that the construction sector has its own unique characteristics, such as economic fluctuations linked to the current economic context, high workforce mobility, the frequently temporary employment of workers, seasonal instability, limited project duration and the large number of small and medium-sized businesses (SMEs) that make up this industry. Our clients appreciate our in-depth understanding of this sector, which allows us to answer the most diverse questions, offer appropriate legal services and anticipate many issues.
