Abstract

The regulatory framework relating to the legal professions in Québec reached a turning point in the 2000s, following the adoption of the Règlement sur l’exercice de la profession d’avocat en société et en multidisciplinarité. More than a decade later, this article examines the negotiation surrounding the drafting of the Règlement, and the various arguments put forward by the Barreau du Québec and other professional corporations to justify its adoption. Data from the registre des entreprises are then used to examine the extent to which Quebec law firms have taken advantage of the diverse legal options at their disposal to organize their activities.

Keywords: legal professions, regulation, ABS
