Dominique Bellemare

I've been practising law for over 35 years, mainly in private international law, business law and corporate governance. Law is the foundation of all our work, but so are diplomacy, strategy and psychology.

Outside my professional activities, I'm a municipal councillor, and I enjoy gardening, travelling, cooking and heritage restoration.
