The Top 25 Most Influential 2019 winner

Edith Jacques

Partner, Lavery de Billy LLP, Montreal

Édith Jacques is a partner in the Montreal office of Lavery’s business law group. She specializes in mergers and acquisitions, commercial law and international law and acts as business and strategic consultant to mid- and large-size companies. On Dec. 18, 2018, Michelin completed the acquisition of Camso. Apart from its value of US$1.7 billion, what distinguishes this transaction from others is its complexity and the role played by the lawyers involved in the legal management of the project. Lavery’s team led by Jacques had an opportunity to play a dual role in this major transaction: by assisting long-time client Camso Inc. in selling all the shares of its share capital and representing the two majority shareholders: the Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec and the Fonds FTQ.
