Partner, Chief Privacy Officer
Fasken Martineau DuMoulin LLP
Antoine Aylwin practices administrative, civil and commercial litigation, with a particular focus on business, for all of the clients that he counsels and represents. His practice areas include accessing information in documents held by public bodies, protecting personal information in the public and private sectors, public and administrative law, disciplinary law, estate litigation and extraordinary remedies, such as injunctions and judicial reviews. In the course of his practice, he regularly pleads before various levels of courts and administrative tribunals, including the Commission d'accès à l'information and the Régie des marchés agricoles et alimentaires.
Aylwin is often invited to give conferences and publish works on such subjects as privacy and information protection. He is responsible for drafting the editorial column of the review L'Informateur Public-Privé. He also co-authored a work with Karl Delwaide entitled "Learning From a Decade of Experience: Québec's Private Sector Privacy Act", published in August 2005 for the Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada.
Aylwin is highly involved in the legal community. He chaired the Young Bar Association of Montreal from 2009–2010, and sat on a number of committees for the Bar of Montreal and the Québec Bar, including the executive committee of each of these organizations (2010–2011).
With the experience he acquired on various boards of directors, he also became interested in governance of organizations. He was able to deepen his understanding of this area by taking a governance seminar through Laval University’s Collège des administrateurs.
