Laurence Bich-Carrière practises in the Litigation Group. A member of the Quebec Bar and of the Law Society of Ontario, her practice is wide-ranging, and she provides services in areas that include class actions, municipal affairs, consumer protection, construction law, administrative law, and expropriation. She represents a variety of clients before  the court, particularly in appeal cases, and also advises clients on drafting and negotiating contracts and settlements and on risk management.

Ms. Bich-Carrière won a number of moot court competitions both in Quebec and internationally, and has authored scholarly publications on defamation, information technology, procedure, and constitutional law. She maintains close ties with the university community and contributes to academic endeavours as a lecturer and as a researcher affiliated with the Paul-André Crépeau Centre for Private and Comparative Law. She is also actively involved in the legal community, for instance as a member of the civil procedure committee of the Quebec Bar and with the Canadian Bar Association.

During the course of her studies, Ms. Bich-Carrière managed to entertain both a very active extracurricular life and excellent results, as she consistently appeared on the Dean?s list and received a number of scholarships for academic excellence, including the Greville-Smith scholarship and the Macdonald Travelling Scholarship for graduate studies.

After completing a master?s degree at the University of Cambridge, Ms. Bich-Carrière served as law clerk to the Honourable Mr. Justice William Ian Corneil Binnie at the Supreme Court of Canada. She also worked at the Hague Conference on Private International Law and practised commercial litigation with a Canada-wide firm. She joined Lavery in 2014.
