Profile

Émilie St-Pierre’s practice covers all aspects of civil and commercial litigation.

She began her career as a law clerk at the Court of Appeal of Quebec. She joined Sarrazin+Plourde after practicing litigation at a major international law firm, where she gained experience working on a variety of disputes.

Her interest for litigation stems from her participation to the Laskin Moot contest in the course of her studies. She currently teaches pleading techniques at the Université du Québec à Montréal to students who represent the university at the same moot.

Prior to practicing law, Ms. St-Pierre worked in the field of design as a costumier.
