Jacques L. Archambault

Archambault Avocats


My role, as it has been in the past 30 years, is to be practice leader for a team of highly specialized health and safety professionals representing management in all aspects related to Occupational Health & Safety and workers compensation, including the financial, prevention and litigation aspects of same. Our objectives are to dramatically reduce employers’ workers compensation assessments by teaching them how to optimize their WC classifications and rating structure, optimize the management of their claims and, most importantly optimize the return on investment of their workplace injury prevention programs.

I am one of the first attorneys in my province to specialize in the above described fields since 1983, and because of this, I was mandated by the CPQ ( representing the Employers of 65% of Quebec workforce) to represent all Quebec employers in the negotiation and implementation of Québec's “new” WCB rating plans from 1989 to 1999. This basically propelled me into the rather rare sub specialty of WCB rating and Finance matters, allowing me to act in many of this provinces most important rating matters.

Though we represent small medium and large companies at odds with all sorts of workers compensation and WCB rating and finance matters, we are known for representing many of Québec's largest employers helping them achieve far beyond average results and assessments which are merely a fraction of their industries’ average.

In 2013, Archambault Attorneys was voted “2013 Health Safety Law Firm of the Year - Quebec”.

Since 2003, he has ranked among Lexpert Magazine’s « Leading Practitioners » while Lexis Nexis - Martindale Hubbell’s peer review process awards him the « Very High rating in both Legal Ability and Ethical Standards ».
Since 2006, the peer review conducted annually by Best Canadian Lawyers has consistently included him among its « Best Lawyers in Canada » and most recently selected him as Best Lawyers’ « 2012 Montréal Workers' Compensation Lawyer of the Year ».

WCB rating and finance expertise is what sets us in a class apart from all other law firms; but beyond this, our ability to combine (1) the legal and litigation aspects with (2) this Rating and Finance expertise as well as (3) Optimal Injury Prevention strategies is what allows us to cover all aspects necessary to provide our clients with everything they need to achieve their objectives of being the best in their class, paying merely fractions of their competitors average WCB assessments; this “wholistic” expertise and capabilities is what sets us apart not only from other law firms but also from most other professional organizations involved in workers compensation and Occupational Health & Safety.
