Langlois Now Recognized in Two Practice Areas in the Chambers Canada 2018 Guide 

Montréal, October 30, 2017 – Langlois Lawyers is proud to announce that two of its lawyers have been listed in the 2018 edition of the prestigious Chambers Canada guide to the best lawyers and law firms in the Country. 

It should be noted that this year marks the first year in its history that the firm’s labour and employment law group has been so recognized. André Sasseville, a senior partner in the group, is described as “an ‘excellent trial lawyer’ who is ‘very experienced and very wise’. Clients are impressed by the quality of his work and note that ‘he’s good at the details’. He has many years’ experience in employment and labour matters and is particularly noted for his work as counsel in arbitration and mediation proceedings. He is also an accredited mediator with the Institut de médiation et d’arbitrage du Québec”. 

Another senior partner of the firm, John O’Connor, is listed as one of the foremost lawyers in Canada in the area of Transportation: Shipping. A leading maritime law practitioner, John has extensive expertise in both international transport and marine insurance, particularly as regards P&I coverage, environmental liability, ship financing and marine casualties. 

Well-deserved recognition 

“The inclusion of John O’Connor and our labour and employment law department in such a select group of practitioners reflects well on our firm and highlights the leading-edge knowledge and remarkable contribution of our lawyers to the legal profession. This is a well-deserved honour for our colleagues and I congratulate them”, stated Jean-François Gagnon, the firm’s chief executive officer. 

The lawyers profiled in Chambers Canada are selected following a rigorous process of research and interviews with a broad spectrum of lawyers and their clients. The final selection is based on clearly defined criteria that include legal expertise and the quality of client service.
