Fanny also acts on a wide variety of civil and commercial litigation files for Canadian, American and European clients.

Alongside her practice, Fanny is a leader and co-founder of the Quebec Chapter of the global Women’s White Collar Defense Association (WWCDA), promoting the practice of women’s business criminal law within the national and global legal community. She was also recently appointed to the executive committee of the Canadian Bar Association’s National Criminal Law Section.

Before joining LCM Attorneys in 2020, Fanny practiced in Montreal with a major national law firm (from 2015 to 2020), having before that started her career in Paris with an international firm. She has also worked in law firms in London and Shanghai.
