Assistant

Ugo has been practicing law for nearly 20 years, mainly in the areas of civil and commercial litigation, as well as in real estate law. He has also been frequently called upon to represent his clients in the context of extraordinary and urgent recourses, particularly with regards to injunctive proceedings. He is known for being meticulous in the defense of his clients’ rights, while always keeping their best commercial interests in mind.

Despite being a litigator, Ugo utilizes a practical approach to law that allows him to consider all legal and commercial aspects of any file, in order to prioritize strategies that will best suit his clients and their business’ needs. It is for this reason that Ugo’s clients maintain their trust in his counsel throughout their business ventures, many of which have done so for over a decade.

It is in this context that he co-founded BLP Lawyers, to meet the needs of business clients who are not merely seeking legal advice, but also wish to be guided in all aspects of their business. Prior to co-founding the firm, Ugo was previously the managing partner of a law firm in which he worked for nearly 10 years, thereby fostering his desire to manage a team and act as a mentor to younger attorneys.
