2020-07-15

In anticipation of the resumption of the Course aux stages 2020, Woods is very proud to announce the hiring of three lawyers recently admitted to the Quebec Bar. Welcome to Arielle Reeves-Breton, Dina Prokic and Marc-Antoine Côté, proud representatives of the next generation of lawyers who just reached a milestone that heralds a promising career as a lawyer!

 

Arielle Reeves-Breton joined our firm after completing her articling with a large regional law firm. She practises primarily in the field of civil and commercial litigation and brings to the firm her experience as a law clerk at the Quebec Court of Appeal and as a research assistant at the Université de Sherbrooke in administrative law.

Dina Prokic has completed her articling with the firm. With broad international experience and being a member of the Quebec and New York State Bars, Dina Prokic acts primarily in the areas of litigation and international arbitration. She has previously worked at the UN Commission on International Trade Law, as well as international law firms in London and Vienna, where she assisted in proceedings under the ICC, LCIA, UNCITRAL and ICSID Rules.

Upon graduating from Laval University with a Bachelor of Laws degree, Marc-Antoine Côté joined Woods as a student and then as an articling student. Recently sworn in as a lawyer, he will act in litigation and dispute resolution in a variety of complex matters. Marc-Antoine was a clerk at the Quebec Superior Court for the Honourable Marc Paradis and the Honourable Jacques G. Bouchard and studied European and International Law at the Sorbonne Law School in Paris.

Woods maintains its growth and remains strongly committed to training the next generation of elite lawyers. As such, the firm is participating in the virtual Course aux stages to be held from August 12 to 21 and looks forward to meeting the next cohort.
