Over the years, he has acquired considerable experience in every aspect of administrative and regulatory law, with a focus on regulatory bodies.

He regularly provides legal advice to a number of private and public sector clients, including professional orders, on administrative law, legislative drafting, constitutional law, judicial review and injunctions.

Mr. Frère frequently acts in professional law and regulation of financial market participants, both before the AMF and the IIROC as well as other self-regulatory bodies, in investigations and disputes, before the criminal courts and disciplinary and administrative tribunals, such as the Tribunal administratif des marchés financiers (formerly the BDRVM), hearing panels, and discipline committees.
