A wrongfully convicted Quebec man granted what’s believed to be the largest civil award in Canada for such cases is full of praise for the pro bono team that represented him for the last three years.
Five lawyers at Borden Ladner Gervais LLP took on Réjean Hinse’s case: Guy Pratte, partner and chairman of the firm’s national council; Alexander De Zordo, partner and regional manager of the litigation department; and associates Katherine Loranger, Marc Unger, and Patrick Plante.
“Among the litigators I’ve come to know, Mr. De Zordo, Mr. Pratte, and Ms. Loranger of BLG are truly in a league of their own. . . . They are true champions for those who, like myself, have struggled with unbearable injustice,” said Hinse.
