Major real estate and construction players

Montréal, May 19, 2023 – It is with great pleasure that we present a part of the team that makes De Grandpré Chait great. For years, DGC has been recognized for being outstanding in Real Estate and Construction law by Chambers and Lexpert and these women have been a great part of that success.

Even though the firm has been around for over 90 years, we certainly don’t feel that old.  We are proud of our modern offices, our dominating female workforce, and the personalized service an agile firm of our stature can offer. What we do is so much more than just provide legal advice.

“The strength of a firm lies in the diversity of its talent and at De Grandpré Chait,
we have that competitive advantage.”
