Specialisation

François obtained his L.L.B. degree from Université Laval in Québec City (dean’s list) in 2015. His academic performance allowed him to work as a research assistant under several law professors, and he has contributed to many academic articles on various civil law topics such as the law of limitations and the law of mortgages. He was called to the bar in 2016. He articled and began his legal career at one of the major law firms in Canada, where he worked mainly in civil litigation and administrative law matters.

François has always had a keen interest for international matters, especially for the Asia Pacific region. Before his legal career, he obtained a B.A. in international studies, with a minor in Japanese studies, in 2006. This led him to live and work in Japan for several years. There, he acquired a knowledge of the Japanese culture and language which allowed him to work as a teacher, translator, interpreter, and consultant.

In addition to his native French and English, François is fluent in Japanese.

Marler is an established expert in the rule of law and public international law generally. I have seen him at work over the years and he is impressive. A barrister with a quick mind, an eloquent tongue and a talent with a pen, as well as having a keen sense of humour. I selected him to be my General Counsel at EQ-G for a reason.

Lawyers in private practice with talent and expertise in resolving MDB sanctions cases are few and far between, but Lee Marler is one of them. He has proven himself time and again to be knowledgeable and highly effective. He is also a fine advocate and draftsman, and this is why I instruct him – where necessary – to assist IACD in its efforts to curb corruption on AfDB financed projects.

An unparalleled blend of legal expertise in the area of International Administrative Law and an understanding of the mindset and functioning of legal departments at international institutions.”
