The honourable André Rochon returns to PFD

PFD Attorneys is very pleased to announce that the Honourable André Rochon, who until recently was a judge of the Quebec Court of Appeal, has joined our law firm.

In doing so, the Honourable André Rochon is returning to his roots having practised law as an attorney in our firm from 1974 to 1994 until his appointment to the Quebec Superior Court in July of 1994. At the time of his appointment, he was acting as the managing partner of our firm.

On February 26, 2002, the Honourable André Rochon was appointed to the Court of Appeal. In that capacity, he has acted regularly as a mediating judge in the context of the mediation programme which was implemented by the Court of Appeal. In addition to being a sought-after conference speaker, he is also the author of numerous articles on various issues of law, as well as of a recent publication published under the title Guide des requêtes devant le juge unique de la Cour d'appel: procédure et pratique.

The Honourable André Rochon brings with him a wealth of judicial expertise of the highest caliber to the great benefit of PFD's attorneys and clients.

He will be joining his colleague André Forget, also formerly of the Court of Appeal and who returned to our firm last year, in our PFD | Private Dispute Prevention department and will provide arbitration and mediation services.

With a team of more than 40 attorneys practising in various disciplines of the law, whether for municipalities, teaching institutions, hospitals and other public bodies as well as for financial institutions, insurance companies and small and medium enterprise, PFD Attorneys is proud to welcome the Honourable André Rochon and to be provided the opportunity to benefit from his expertise, his experience and great competence in order to better serve its clientele.
