Dentons Canada LLP is pleased to announce the addition of five new lawyers to its Montreal Real Estate practice and two new lawyers to its Montreal Financial Services practice. The arrival of these lawyers, all recognized for their expertise in their respective fields, will further bolster the high quality service Dentons offers clients in Canada and around the world.
Chantal Sylvestre will join Dentons Canada as partner and lead Dentons’ Real Estate team in Montreal. Chantal has been practising in this field since 1996 and is recognized as a leader in Quebec real estate law. She will be joined by Michel Poirier (counsel) who boasts almost 40 years of experience in matters of land use planning and real estate development. Sara Reid and Jonathan Nuss, both associates, and Marjolaine Arès, a notary, will also bring their expertise to the Montreal Real Estate group.
Joel Cabelli will join Dentons Canada as partner in the Montreal Financial Services group. Joel specializes in Canadian and cross-border financing, with a focus on commercial credit transactions, syndicated loans, factoring transactions, real estate lending, asset-based lending, equipment financing and leasing as well as inter-creditor relations. Joel will be joined by Marie-Josée Couture (associate) in the Financial Services group.
“Our firm is recognized for the quality of its services and these lawyers bring great advantages for our clients,” says Claude Morency, Managing Partner of Dentons’ Montreal office. “The arrival of Chantal Sylvestre and her team brings leading expertise to our office in matters involving real estate law. Our Financial Services group is now stronger than ever with the addition of Joel and Marie-Josée.”

Each built an outstanding reputation and valued clientele by responding to the local, regional and national needs of a broad spectrum of clients of all sizes—individuals; entrepreneurs; small businesses and startups; local, regional and national governments and government agencies; and mid-sized and larger private and public corporations, including international and global entities.
Dentons' clients now benefit from approximately 2,600 lawyers and professionals in more than 75 locations spanning 50-plus countries across Africa, Asia Pacific, Canada, Central Asia, Europe, the Middle East, Russia and the CIS, the UK and the US who are committed to challenge the status quo and offer creative, dynamic business and legal solutions.
