Torys is opening a Montréal office to be led by former Norton Rose partner Sylvie Rodrigue. Torys’ Montréal office, which will be headed by Sylvie Rodrique, is slated to open April 2.
Rodrigue has moved to Torys as a partner and will continue to practise litigation in Toronto, with Torys, while heading up the new Montréal office. The office is due to officially open by April 2 and will focus on litigation.
