Geoffroy Pavillet

Geoffroy has been practicing tort and contract-based insurance litigation since 2006. He regularly argues before the Ontario Superior Court of Justice, the Financial Services Commission and Federal Review Tribunals. He has also worked for one of the world’s largest insurance companies and for a leading intellectual property and corporate law firm in Paris, France.

Geoffroy grew up in Washington DC, Paris, and Buenos Aires, before emigrating to Montreal. He obtained law and economics degrees in English, French and Spanish, ranked first at his Master’s project and graduated youngest in his class. In 2010, he also obtained a Certificate in Portuguese from the University of Toronto. His language skills improve solicitor-client communication, which can translate into better case assessments or objections to improper interpretations of evidence during proceedings.

Geoffroy believes that to advocate liability or damages and pragmatically assess risk, you must educate yourself on a variety of subjects in addition to law. His passion outside of his practice is to learn about science, economics and health. Geoffroy understands that to build a strong case and persuade an increasingly diverse audience, you must strive to be both multidisciplinary and multicultural.
