Doctor of Law (DCL) and artist
Expert in labor, employment, arts and entertainment law (doctorate from McGill University, 2015 and Barreau du Québec, 2003), Maude began her career in a large law firm (Stikeman Elliott) in the labor law department, then she chose to practice on her own.
As a professor and a lecturer, she has had the pleasure of sharing her knowledge, over the years, with many university students, both undergraduate and graduate.
Passionate about research and writing, she has benefited from the support of several funding institutions (SSRH, CRIMT, Fondation du Barreau, Chambre des notaires). Her research has focused on freedom of association and the promotion of collective autonomy of the self-employed. Convinced of the interest, for other atypical workers, of the legal regime specifically framing the labor relations of artists in Quebec, Maude studied this regime, which continues to stimulate her curiosity. Her work has been published in Canadian and international journals and presented at various conferences in Canada, Italy, United Kingdom, Australia and Mexico.
In addition to her activities as a lawyer, Maude is also active in the artistic world. Driven by the desire to tell stories, she has written and produced several short films and a web series presented in festivals, as well as plays. Her working knowledge of the arts and entertainment industry gives her a privileged perspective when it comes to adopting strategies to meet the legal needs of her clients.
