Firm Details

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

The firm is comprised of nearly 70 lawyers and professionals, specializing in a wide variety of practice areas: commerce, insurance, banking and finance, environment, resources and energy, bankruptcy and insolvency, tax, franchising, real estate, international transactions, licensing and technology, civil and commercial litigation, class actions, intellectual property, Trusts and Estages, 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 without compromising their high standards of professional service, always promptly and efficiently delivered.

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.
