LJT Lawyers partners with the 2019 IRCM Challenge

May 15th, 2019

Last May 11th, devoted fans, it is with great pleasure and a little bit of competition among colleagues, that the LJT Lawyers team crushed our personal fundraising record with $4,608.50 in donations raised to support the Montreal Clinical Research Institute, at the IRCM Challenge last Saturday on Mount Royal! Positioning us in the top 10 best donors (# 1 law firm), we are very proud of our annual contribution to this unique initiative.

Many thanks to the organisers and participants, young and not so young, who, despite the cold weather, ran and walked in the name of health research.
