Anik Trudel sees herself as a change agent — which is exactly what her new employer, Quebec law firm Lavery de Billy LLP was looking for when it hired her as its new CEO. Trudel had been on the job just “48 hours” when she spoke to Legal Feeds about her new role in Quebec’s largest independent law firm.
“Quite frankly, the job description was pretty bold,” the lawyer and public relations executive told Legal Feeds in describing her decision to accept Lavery’s offer.
“The CEO positon was specifically described as a transformational role,” she says, “to support Lavery’s vision to be recognized for having transformed the way we deliver legal services. And quite frankly, I saw this as an opportunity that I couldn’t pass [up].”
