BACK-AND-FORTH

What’s your favourite musical group?

I like lots of types of music, but my current obsession is Half Moon Run, an alternative rock group from Montreal.

Do you want kids?

Family is very important to me. I have two brothers and a sister. I know I want kids, but I don’t know how many or when.

What is your vision for Mont-Tremblant’s future?

Every morning when I wake up, I feel fortunate to live in the Laurentians—especially in Mont-Tremblant. The future of the region is very promising; there are a number of visionaries who are helping it grow. It’s an honour for me exercise my profession, in such a flourishing region, and to work alongside important economic players for the greater Mont-Tremblant region.

When talking about a co-ownership project, in the region, Jean-Philippe is the man!

JEAN-PHILIPPE C. BOILEAU

PARTNER

Demonstrating creativity while navigating a clear, established legal framework to identify innovative and custom solutions for each project: this defines the personality of this young Title Attorney, the total opposite of the stereotypical traditional notary.

FINDING BALANCE IN MUSIC AND SPORTS

Jean-Philippe knows that it’s important to strike a balance to avoid getting overwhelmed by work and stress, which often happens when you’re a young entrepreneur. Music and sports are his escapes.

When he was about 5 or 6, his dad taught him to play drums while listening to CCR. He’s held onto his drumsticks since!

Downhill skiing, running, biking, swimming, badminton and ping pong (yes, that too!) allow him to destress.

what is happiness ?

In a philosophy class in cégep, the teacher asked him to argue for his definition of happiness. To Jean-Philippe at that time, happiness meant fulfilling his passions. So he left school to pursue his passion: music.

Soon, Jean-Philippe realized he had made an impulsive decision. To fully taste happiness, he needed to be in a setting where the rules are clear. In music, there is no real framework to work with.

No matter his choices, his parents refrained from judgment and supported him. After talking to them and reflecting on his situation, he came to a conclusion: he wanted to get back on the right track.

ONE VISIT, AND THINGS FALL INTO PLACE

When he visited the notary office where his mother was working at the time, and talked with people there, he had a revelation. The notary profession fits with his vision of the world: when notaries know the rules, they can establish legal ties between different parties and explain what they can legally do or not.

Thus began Jean-Philippe’s comeback. After cégep, he studied law and discovered a passion for business and constitutional law, which led him to specialize in a specific field: co-ownership law. At this point, he knew he was in exactly the right place. This branch of the notary profession allows him to come up with creative, innovative solutions for his clients within a clear and well-established legal framework.

A modern vision of the legal world

After he left university, he was hired by a firm. There, he met Timothée and Catherine, two young notaries with just as much enthusiasm as him. When two experienced colleagues left the firm, the three of them became more involved. They quickly realized that their values and vision of the notary profession were polar opposites from those well established in the firm.

After an unsuccessful attempt to take over the firm, they struck out into the abyss to found their own company.

With some tireless hard work to create a company in their image, the three notaries put together the guiding principles to form the framework of VSB Title Attorneys. Today, after he finishes a meeting and shakes hands with a client, he feels proud, because he has given the best of himself and come up with a solution tailored to his client’s needs. And has he aptly puts it, that feeling is priceless.

A NEW WAY TO LOOK AT HIS PRACTICE

Since he’s become an entrepreneur, Jean-Philippe better understands the emotions that his clients go through, because he has gone from theory to practice. Every time, he asks the following question: "If it were my project, what would I do?"
