Biography:

Who's Who Legal Litigation: Future Leaders - Partners

Patrick Ouellet has been a partner of his firm since 2006. A fellow of the prestigious American College of Trial Lawyers, he is known as one of Quebec's finest trial and appellate lawyers. His practice spans the fields of commercial, corporate and civil litigation, as well as arbitration. Patrick's particular focus has been in litigation involving securities, telecommunications, class actions, construction, and shareholder disputes, in which he has been and remains responsible for many especially high-profile cases. In 2016 and 2018, Patrick was named Quebec Litigator of the Year by Benchmark Canada, an honour bestowed on the basis of extensive research, and peer review and ranking. He has also been listed by Benchmark, since 2017, as one of the Top 50 Trial Lawyers in Canada. He is further listed as one of Quebec's preeminent litigators in a number of fields by publications such as Lexpert, Benchmark and Chambers Canada. Patrick has taught the law of evidence at the Quebec Bar School for many years, and he is a sought-after speaker on diverse subject matters related to his areas of practice.

Representative mandates include: securing awards in damages in excess of $82 million in capital against a satellite television broadcaster for having neglected to act to eradicate the piracy of its television signals in Vidéotron senc v Bell ExpressVu LP, 2015 QCCA 422; and successfully challenging the authorisation to institute a class action brought against a broadcasting television undertaking, alleging false representations with respect to the sale and offer for sale of additional warranties to consumers, in Cantin v Ameublements Tanguay Inc et al, 2016 QCCS 4546.

WWL says: Patrick Ouellet stands out in the Canadian market for his excellent work handling litigation proceedings across a range of sectors from telecommunications to securities.
