Following the announcement of the arrival of the Papineau Lawyers team at LJT, find the interview with Mtre Christian Joly, managing partner of the firm.
** Change to second gear **
On January 30, LJT Lawyers announced that the five lawyers of Papineau Lawyers, specialized in co-ownership law, joined its team.
"Their expertise helps to achieve our real estate and construction law practices," explains Mtre Christian Joly, managing partner of LJT Lawyers. For its part, Papineau Avocats is integrating a larger firm, which will allow them to better promote its services.
The discussions lasted about eight months. Once the merger is complete, the challenge remains to ensure that the teams do not work in silos. LJT Lawyers has planned an original approach to achieve this. "Rather than grouping each practice in their own space, we have mixed them," says** Christian Joly**. A construction lawyer can be found next to another in co-ownership law or a notary. Thus, people meet and get to know each other. "
In August 2019, LJT also welcomed the team of Lessard and Companies Lawyers. "This marks a turning point in the history of LJT, which had never acquired before. We have other regrouping opportunities in sight, always with complementary expertise to ours" ,says Christian Joly.
