An Exceptional Record of Achievement

Lapointe Rosenstein Marchand Melançon is one of the largest independent law firms in Quebec, the result of the January 1, 2010 merger of two well-established firms, Lapointe Rosenstein and Marchand Melançon Forget.

The firm is comprised of nearly 70 lawyers practicing in a wide range of practice areas: commercial, insurance, banking and finance, bankruptcy and insolvency, tax, franchising, real estate, international transactions, licensing and technology, civil and commercial litigation, intellectual property as well as labour and employment. The firm can also count on the expertise of a number of other professionals such as notaries, advisors and translators.

For over 50 years, Lapointe Rosenstein Marchand Melançon and its predecessor firms have been fulfilling their clients' expectations for expertise, availability and reliability with high standards of professional service, promptness and efficiency.

We have also actively sought out and developed an international practice in order to better serve our clients in the face of increasing globalization and market expansion. Our membership in TerraLex®, an international organization of attorneys in over 100 countries, gives us access to a worldwide network of legal and other business advisors.

We are multilingual, multicultural and come from a variety of backgrounds. As such, we reflect the cultural and linguistic diversity of Montreal, one-third of our attorneys being first or second generation Canadians. We are open to the world, offering services in more than twelve languages.
