Since the beginning of his practice, Me Pierre G. Hébert has been able to make his mark by achieving success in numerous mandates relating to labour relations where the stakes made jurisprudence in Québec.

After a number of years as attorney and assistant director of labour law with the Société de transport de Montréal’s legal department, Me Hébert joined the firm Guy & Gilbert first as a lawyer in the labour department and then as partner. He is one of the founding partners of Dufresne Hébert Comeau.

For more than 30 years, Me Hébert has acted exclusively as a litigator, negotiator and advisor in labour relations and is one of the leaders of the labour and employment law group. He acts as attorney and legal advisor for employers in both the private, public and parapublic sectors. He offers professional services of consultation and representation before the civil, penal and administrative courts as well as in matters of negotiation, implementation and interpretation of collective agreements, individual employment contracts, and in matters of arbitration or complaints before the labour law organizations which are now grouped under the new Commission des normes, de l’équité et de la santé et sécurité du travail.

Me Hébert has also developed an expertise in training foremen and first-line managers in unionized environments in order to familiarize them with the concepts found in a collective agreement and their application.
