Julie represents clients operating in various sectors of the economy, supporting them in the areas of environmental compliance, government relations and obtaining or amending permits and licences. She also acts in purchase and sale transactions, as well as in the financing of business operations or properties, by carrying out due diligence environmental reviews, and drafting and negotiating environment-related clauses. In addition, she is experienced in handling contaminated land issues.
Thanks to her considerable experience with project implementation, especially renewable energy (hydroelectric, wind power, solar, biomass and biogas) projects, Julie plays a key role at all stages of the projects, from contract negotiation and financing, to project authorization and the securing of environmental permits.
Before returning to private practice, Julie was the director of legal affairs and operations with a large producer of renewable energy. In performing her duties, she was required to manage complex projects and to identify business and legal issues involved and carry out risk assessments. Over the years, she has become an excellent advisor in the areas of risk management and environmental compliance.
Julie also worked for more than five years in the field of mergers and acquisitions with a large Canadian law firm.
