LL.B and MBA
French, English, Spanish
Anne joined our team after a long stint working in-house in the manufacturing and transportation industry. And because she has a particular skill for striking conversation with all kinds of professionals – not just lawyers – she has a knack for understanding the many hazards businesses face and the risk management situation.
“A lot depends on what stage of growth the company is at,” says Anne. “For any company, regardless of size, the challenge is to help leadership adopt the right governance and risk strategy. You have to ask management the right questions.”
It’s her excellent reading of the issues at stake and an understanding of all the parties’ interests that make Anne so valuable to clients. Get to know her, and it’ll come as no surprise to learn that she is quite proficient at the game of operational Tetris.
Away from the office, Anne can be a bit of a thrill-seeker, even though she’s promised her loved ones that her paragliding days are behind her. She settles now for anything that involves strapping on a pair of skis, whether cross-country, telemark or alpine — whatever works to enjoy a good glide.
After completing her law degree at the University of Montreal, Anne went into private practice at a large firm in Montreal as an employment lawyer, before returning to school to complete her MBA. In 2005, she took up a position at Bombardier Transportations Americas. Over the next decade, she would serve as a senior legal advisor and lead the company’s contract management office. In 2017, she returned to private practice as an accredited mediator in civil and commercial matters. She joined the Simplex Legal team as Senior Legal Counsel in 2022.
