Attorney Adeline Simenon recently participated in a joint presentation to several Quebec companies interested in learning more about doing business in Vermont. The event was hosted by the Lake Champlain Regional Chamber of Commerce (“LCRCC”), as part of their Vermont-Quebec Enterprise Initiative, an effort to position Vermont as the location of choice for Quebec companies looking to expand their operations in the United States.
Attorney Simenon joined Governor Peter Shumlin, President Pro Tem John Campbell, Speaker of the House Shap Smith, Tom Torti, President of the Lake Champlain Chamber of Commerce, Kirsten Bourgeois of the Agency for Commerce and Community Development, and Frank Cioffi, President of the Greater Burlington Chamber of Commerce, along with a team of local industry-specific leaders. She led a presentation on the legal issues involved in Vermont-Canadian commerce. Attorney Simenon outlined the various areas of law in which Paul Frank + Collins can assist Quebec companies interested in doing business in Vermont.
The LCRCC is planning to use up to $100,000 from the State to foster economic ties with Quebec by increasing trade between Vermont and Quebec, attracting Quebec companies to Vermont, and establishing “cross-border collaboration.”
