McCarthy Tétrault’s Labour & Employment Group expands with addition of Stéphane Duval and David Nachfolger

Montréal, July 14, 2014 — McCarthy Tétrault is delighted to announce that Stéphane Duval and David Nachfolger have joined the firm’s Labour & Employment Group in Montreal. Mr. Duval and Mr. Nachfolger bring extensive experience in corporate immigration law.

"We are thrilled to continue growing our labour and employment practice with the addition of Stéphane and David," said Jacques Rousse, National Practice Group Leader of the Labour & Employment Group. "We are proud to provide our clients with efficient and effective guidance to successfully navigate the complex requirements and policies of Canadian immigration. Stéphane and David have a deep understanding of and experience with immigration law and our clients will greatly benefit from their valuable strategic and practical advice."

Mr. Duval joins as a partner and leader of the firm's Montreal-based immigration practice. A sought after legal practitioner and speaker, Stéphane advises both local businesses and large multinational corporations on their immigration and global mobility policy. He is a frequent commentator on local and national media networks and has advised many of the world's leading corporations on their expansion into Canada. Mr. Duval is routinely called upon to help clients translate evolving government regulation into effective and strategic plans to grow their business and secure top talent. He currently serves as Vice-Chair of the Canadian Bar Association, National Section and also President of the Québec division.

Mr. Nachfolger joins the firm’s immigration law practice with a focus on immigration and emigration matters for multinational companies, both in Canada and abroad. He will serve clients on a wide range of matters, supporting all business sectors with complete immigration and visa services, including overall strategic global mobility policy and planning, temporary resident and work permits, permanent resident applications, citizenship issues, inadmissibility challenges, and family sponsorship.

McCarthy Tétrault's national Labour & Employment Group is a dynamic and experienced group working with both federal and provincial employers in the public and private sectors. The group’s experience across Canada is as broad as the issues facing today’s employers — encompassing traditional union/management relationships, human rights, wrongful dismissal, employment standards, corporate restructuring and executive compensation. The group also advises on issues such as privacy, novel work arrangements and managing technology in the workplace. Its practitioners regularly appear before courts and administrative tribunals across Canada on matters such as wrongful or unjust dismissal complaints, and represent employer interests before labour relations boards and human rights tribunals.
