A Montreal law firm known for its work in complex litigation is merging with Langlois LLP.
Richard Provost, managing partner and founder of Fraticelli Provost s.e.n.c.r.l./LLP, says seven lawyers, one articling student, four assistants and one paralegal will be joining Langlois, which is one of the largest firms in Quebec.
Provost will be a partner at Langlois. He’s moving into the firm’s Montreal office this week, along with other colleagues from Fraticelli Provost.
“Langlois is, in my book, the number one firm in the moment in terms of looking towards the future — the approach to the young lawyers, their approach to the practise, everything, every aspect of their firm,” says Provost.
“It’s just going into a large firm that has a small firm type philosophy and approach,” he added. Fraticelli Provost was founded 15 years ago and has always had 10 to 13 lawyers, says Provost.
“[O]ur forte is probably professional liability and construction-related cases, but that really encompasses and covers a very, very large type of litigation,” says Provost.
