Our client, Béton Provincial, is a privately owned Quebec company founded in 1960. They are the largest independent Canadian company in the concrete industry, with more than 100 plants, a fleet of over 500 concrete mixers and close to 2,000 employees. Béton Provincial supplies concrete and paving products for the most ambitious construction projects throughout Quebec and the Maritimes. From port and industrial facilities to hydroelectric power plants, airports and residential real estate, Béton Provincial has the expertise to carry out any project while minimizing its environmental footprint.
In order to support their growth plans, our client is creating a new position of Vice President, Legal Affairs and Corporate Secretary to assist their management team.
Reporting directly to the President, you will act as the company’s sole in-house counsel and will be responsible for overseeing all of the company’s legal issues by providing day-to-day advice to senior management and the company’s various business units. You will analyze business opportunities and act as an advisor on proposed or ongoing transactions, including acquisitions, partnerships or business purchases/sales.

You will implement internal procedures and policies to ensure that the company’s practices comply with applicable legislation. You will ensure the smooth running of meetings of the Board of Directors and its committees, acting as secretary during meetings. Where necessary, you will manage litigation in collaboration with external lawyers.
Are you looking for action and responsibility, have an entrepreneurial spirit and know how to propose practical and concrete solutions to business people? Do you have an eye for risk identification, are you a good communicator and negotiator? If you are one of those people who like to get things done and want to grow both in your legal role and more broadly over time, we would like to talk. You must have at least 10 years of relevant legal experience, be a member of the Quebec Bar and have a good level of English to qualify.
