Samuel joined Cotney in 2020 in order to establish the Montréal Office.
Responsible for all matters in the province of Québec, Samuel primarily focuses his practice in the areas of business and civil litigation, notably in construction law, injunctions, real estate law and shareholders disputes. Samuel also has experience assisting small business owners with corporate matters ranging from the incorporation of their company to its dissolution, as well as drafting and reviewing contracts.
Samuel started his legal career in a renown Montréal boutique litigation firm, where he quickly took charge of his own cases, which allowed him to develop his own set of litigation skills, while assisting experienced lawyers in major and complex cases.
Prior to practicing law, Samuel gained experience in construction by working in his family’s business, a well established construction company in the Laurentian region. This experience and knowledge of the construction industry allows Samuel to quickly understand construction-related issues and to submit realistic and practical solutions to his clients.
Samuel was admitted to the Québec Bar in 2017 after earning his law degree from the University of Montréal. He is passionate about visual arts and occasionally offers pro-bono services to local artists and other members of the Montréal artistic community.
