Yannick Beaudoin has joined Bennett Jones as a partner in the firm's newest office in Montréal. He brings 25 years of experience in infrastructure and project development, project finance, banking and financial services, real estate and asset-based finance. He has worked on some of the largest infrastructure and project financings in the province's recent history. He acts for clients in Québec, across Canada and internationally, helping them succeed in a wide range of high-profile, complex and leading edge projects.
"The opportunity to set up a new office with my new colleagues and partners at Bennett Jones was just too hard to resist. I look forward to working with our team of highly skilled lawyers and showing the Québec market what sets us apart from our competitors. Our common goal is to build and foster deep and longstanding client relationships," says Yannick.
Yannick advises project proponents in the transportation, social infrastructure, alternative energy, power and healthcare sectors—as well as bond underwriters, institutional investors and banks in financing these assets. He is involved in securitization programs of every significant asset class involving Québec assets. In real estate law, he serves clients in financing, acquisitions and dispositions of property as well as development, leasing and management of commercial property.
"Since launching our Montréal office earlier this year, we have been thrilled with the response in the business community," says Hugh MacKinnon, Chairman and CEO of Bennett Jones. "Yannick is a renowned lawyer in Québec and will be an outstanding addition to our Montréal team as we continue to build on our long-term commitment in the province."
Canadian and international legal directories consistently recognize Yannick as a leading lawyer in his areas of practice. The Canadian Legal Lexpert Directory ranks him in project finance, infrastructure law, banking & finance, and all aspects of asset financing. IFLR1000 includes him in banking & finance and real estate. The cross-border Lexpert/American Lawyer Guide to the Leading 500 Lawyers in Canada ranks Yannick in project finance.
