In memory of Serge Vaillancourt (1957-2018)

Montreal, July 18, 2018 – Mr. Serge Vaillancourt, longstanding Notary at De Grandpré Chait, passed away on June 15, 2018. He is survived by his wife Monique and their two children, Felix and Gabrielle. We would like to take this occasion to extend our most heartfelt condolences to his family and friends.

Serge Vaillancourt joined De Grandpré Chait in 2004 as a notary with the firm’s real estate law group. In addition to his unparalleled knowlege of real estate titles, his renowned skills proved pivotal in connection with acquisitions and financing initiatives of real estate properties, wherein he was involved in examining titles, drafting opinions and making recommendations while ensuring that the appropriate adjustments were applied. He played a decisive role in the real estate law team, which thoroughly entrusted his astute and substantiated advice.

“Serge was undeniably a consummate professional in all aspects and his gentle nature was ever present in his day-to-day dealings with colleagues and clients, declared Marc J. Rubin, a real estate lawyer and close colleague. His work was impeccable, always completed on time and always delivered with a smile. Never did Serge complain nor did he ever have a bad word to say about anyone, he was a true gentleman who was respected and treasured by all.”

Serge Vaillancourt initially started out by working in notarial offices until 1996, when he redirected his career and brought his solid experience to the service of a number of law firms. Fourteen years ago, he was hired by Marc J. Rubin in order to collaborate with a team of lawyers who were practicing real estate law at De Grandpré Chait.

Serge made an undeniable impact on the firm thanks to both his personality and professionalism and we are deeply grateful for his efforts. Inspired by his meticulousness and efficiency, our real estate law team will continue to provide support to its clients by relying on the immense contribution that Serge made to the firm.
