Brahm M. Gelfand


Brahm M. Gelfand is a counsel to the firm. Brahm commenced his career as the most junior attorney in a boutique firm which was involved in every imaginable type of litigation matter, from automobile accidents to complex commercial disputes. As he gained experience, he was attracted to the area of business law disputes. Consequently, he found himself advising clients on commercial transactions and not just the litigation arising therefrom. By the time Brahm merged his practice with one of the predecessors of Lapointe Rosenstein Marchand Melancon, the volume of his non-litigious commercial practice obliged him to direct his litigation activities to others in the firm. This gave him the opportunity to concentrate his activities on mergers and acquisitions, finance and securities. Today, Brahm’s advice and counsel is sought on a wide variety of complex business and strategic issues, on both the national and international levels. Brahm’s clientele is many and varied and consists of owner-operated businesses as well as public companies located in Canada, the United States and abroad.

The nature of his practice has resulted in the development of a widespread global network of relationships. He has been an organizer and participant in many conferences which has enabled him to keep abreast not only of the changes in the practice of law domestically, but also of how the law is practiced in many different jurisdictions.
