LJT Lawyers managing partner Robert Thiffault practices business law, primarily with Quebec professionals (pharmacists, surgeons, etc.), entrepreneurs and emerging businesses (in the industrial and high technology sectors). This entrepreneurial expertise means Robert can support his clients throughout their business careers on both a personal level (wills, family trusts, matrimonial and taxation matters) and a corporate one (franchise law, corporate taxation, executive profit-sharing, asset protection, purchase/sale, mergers and private financing).

A regular speaker at conferences, Robert has addressed the association of Jean Coutu owners of Quebec many times and given speeches for the Barreau du Québec’s continuing education program. He has also been a guest speaker at the Université du Québec à Montréal, in both its undergraduate and graduate programs. Robert has been a contributor to Flash fiscal published twice a month by the Association de planification fiscale et financière (APFF) and a member of the budget analysis committee for the benefit of APFF members when the Quebec finance minister tables the budget. Robert has also been a member of the Investment Dealers Association of Canada’s taxation committee reviewing the Quebec finance minister’s budget proposals.

Robert has lectured in the Université du Québec à Montréal’s MBA program for business financing executives and for the APFF. He has also acted as a consultant-expert in taxation for the Jeune Barreau du Québec’s lawyer support program.
