Julie represents clients operating in various sectors of the economy, supporting them in all the areas of environmental compliance, government relations and obtaining or amending permits and licences. Thanks to her considerable experience with project implementation, especially renewable energy (hydroelectric, wind power, solar, biomass, biogas and hydrogen) projects, Julie plays a key role at all stages of the projects, from contract negotiation and financing, to project authorization and the securing of environmental permits.
She also acts as an environmental advisor in transactions involving purchase and sale of businesses or real estate in terms of compliance and licensing, as well as negotiating environmental guarantees and compensation. In addition, she has a particular expertise in contaminated land management.
Before returning to private practice, Julie was the director of legal affairs and operations with a large producer of renewable energy. In performing her duties, she was required to manage complex projects, identify business and legal issues involved and carry out risk assessments.
Over the years, Julie has become an excellent advisor in the areas of risk management, environmental compliance and obligations related to lobbying activities both in Québec and nationwide.
