Mr. Paillé began his career as a litigation lawyer in the Montreal region, practising in domains such as civil, administrative and banking law. During his master’s degree, he particularly developed a specialization in free trade agreements being negotiated or already in effect, while studying international law, economics and political sciences. As part of his professional master program, Mr. Paillé also worked at the European Parliament in Brussels, Belgium in the Directorate for Regions Transatlantic Relations and G8 Unit, which gave him insight on the different key policy and economic issues being negotiated between Europe and its international partner.

His rich international experience led him to join the legal team of CJ International Group Inc. in January 2016 and its legal extension, CJ Legal Services, firms that provide investment immigration services to its high-net worth clientele. Mr. Paillé works everyday with immigrant investors on the best ways to achieve their goal of residency or citizenship abroad.
