The expression ofone stone two blows stick well to the skin of LJT Avocats. The Montreal firm, founded some forty years ago, welcomes two new lawyers among its partners, Jeremy Wisniewski and Dany Montpetit. The two companions have been working at LJT since 2016 and 2017 respectively.
These appointments bring the number of LJT partners to twenty-two, according to information on its website. The number of women remains unchanged at five.
Mr. Wisniewski, who is celebrating his twentieth year of practice this year, is managing a law firm for the second time in his career. He was a partner with the defunct Heenan Blaikie firm between 2010 and 2014. Without saying that he “coveted” such a position, the 2002 Bar says he is happy to regain such a position.
“I have been with LJT Avocats for several years. It was time for me to think about the future. I am very happy to be offered the partnership in the office,” he confided to Droit-Inc.
He also considers that this announcement confirms his membership in the firm, a prospect that he is enthusiastic about because of the “young people” he says he rubs shoulders with at LJT.
“The next generation, which is supporting the partners, is really fantastic. When I talk about the young people, I’m talking about the lawyers, but also about the administrative team, which is also very dynamic. »
Jeremy Wisniewski practices in arbitration and commercial litigation, including shareholder disputes, breach of contract, construction, professional liability and product liability.
His practice also focuses on cross-border litigation which includes issues of private international law and territorial jurisdiction.
Me Montpetit, who practices in taxation, believes for his part that his appointment will help him develop this “sector of activity”. The 2012 Bar mainly works with small business owners, including owner pharmacists and construction company owners.
“I already have a small team, but I hope it will continue to grow so that we can handle more cases and expand the firm’s clientele,” says the 33-year-old lawyer.
Dany Montpetit studied law at the University of Montreal. He completed a master’s degree in taxation at the University of Sherbrooke in 2017.
