Osler is pleased to welcome Stéphane Eljarrat back to the firm’s national Litigation practice group.

Known for his composed and focused approach, Stéphane represents corporate clients, institutions and their senior leadership in a wide range of criminal investigations and proceedings brought under competition, anti-corruption, anti-money laundering and other federal legislation. He serves as the North American regional representative of the Anti-Corruption Committee of the International Bar Association.

Stéphane also advises Canadian and foreign clients in complex, high-stakes trials and on internal reviews, audits, crisis management and corporate governance issues, as well as the design and implementation of compliance programs. Ranked Band 1 by Chambers Canada in White-Collar Crime and Government Investigations, Stéphane will work closely with Osler’s market-leading Risk Management and Crisis Response team and lead the firm’s White-Collar Defence practice.

“We are thrilled that Stéphane has returned to Osler, where he spent several years building our white-collar defence practice into one of the best and most sought-after teams in Canada,” says Sandra Abitan, Managing Partner of Osler’s Montréal office.

“Stéphane’s skill and experience as a litigator and trusted advisor to clients facing investigation are second to none,” adds Sonia Bjorkquist, Chair of the firm’s National Litigation Department. “Our clients in Canada and abroad will benefit from his proactive, strategic and thorough approach to managing risk, conducting investigations and responding to enforcement proceedings.”
