Mentor depuis 2015 et instigateur du Programme de mentorat en entrepreneuriat Patrick Albert

Drawn to the law by a natural instinct for advocacy and justice and raised with the family motto of “Feray ce que diray” (Will do what I say), Christian is known for his straightforward and transparent approach with both clients and adversaries. 


Raised in Canada’s first bilingual town of Grand Falls/Grand-Sault, Christian has garnered significant experience in public law, involving both administrative and constitutional litigation matters. He has developed a solid reputation for his efforts and successes in advancing language rights amongst government and institutional clients. In addition, Christian maintains a commercial litigation practice, including insolvency, bankruptcy, restructuring, and construction law. 


As past President and Bâtonnier of the Law Society of New Brunswick, Christian is an active member of the legal, business and volunteer communities, often sought after for governance related advice on ethical matters, codes of conduct and policy and other related issues.


An epicurean, fisherman and avid traveler with a spirit for adventure, Christian brings the same passion to his legal practice as he does to his personal pursuits and works to provide his clients with a high level of personalized service and quality legal work. 


Christian has participated in several important constitutional challenges dealing with various sections of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, namely fundamental freedoms (sec. 2 of the Charter), democratic rights (sec. 3), mobility rights (sec. 6), right to equality (sec. 15), language rights (sec. 16 to 20) and the minority education rights (sec. 23).


He has been involved in complex litigation affecting the management of public resources such as Atlantic fisheries, Native Rights cases and in matters relating to law enforcement officials. Given his experience, various governments have and continue to call upon Christian’s services to defend impugned legislation in various constitutional litigation matters.


The work done by Christian in the field of constitutional law has allowed him to appear at all court levels in Canada, including a few occasions in the Supreme Court of Canada with his first appearance in 1999 while he was only in his 2nd year at the Bar.
