About

Karim practices at our affiliated office Siskinds, Desmeules in Quebec City.

He graduated from the faculty of law at Laval University where he obtained an LL. B. in 2003. He was called to the Quebec Bar in 2004.

Karim also holds a master's degree in international and transnational law from Laval University (LL. M.), graduating in 2009.

After he completed his internship and practiced as a lawyer at Pothier Delisle, Karim gained valuable experience working on a major class action in environmental contamination and personal injury, being at the heart of the plaintiffs prosecuting team.

Before joining Siskinds Desmeules in November 2015, Karim practiced for over two years in a smaller firm where he developed his expertise in business and corporate law and where he had the chance to work in close collaboration with a diverse business clientele.
