The faces behind Lazard & Associates Inc.


Jean Lazard


I am the President and the sole Licensed Insolvency Trustee for the firm. I have been a Trustee since 1999. Over the years I have helped thousands of people whose lives have been turned upside down because of debt. I hold a dual license, meaning I can accept files in Ontario and Quebec. It is very important to me that clients dealing with my firm have a positive experience in an otherwise not so pleasant part of their lives. My team and I will always treat you with respect and dignity. We will always provide you with the information you need in order to make the best decision possible when dealing with your debt. Let me and my team show you why you’ve made the right decision in choosing Lazard & Associates Inc. in your search to find a solution to dealing with your financial difficulties.


Alex Lazard


Hello, my name is Alex Lazard and I am the estate and daily operations manager of the firm under my father and LIT Jean Lazard, President of Lazard & Associates Inc. I deal with all aspects of the insolvency process – from administration to answering calls and speaking with your creditors. Together, my father and I continuously adapt and find creative debt relief solutions for eastern Ontarians during this ever changing financial climate. I am currently working to obtain my Insolvency Trustee License under the guidance of my father, in hopes of partnering with him and to gain greater knowledge and depth in the Canadian insolvency process. You really can’t ask for a better tutor! As a firm, our commitment to our clients is unprecedented. If you need help and don’t know where to turn or who to call; it would be our pleasure to assess your situation over a free consultation. You will see the difference that I, my father and Lazard and Associates Inc. will provide to you.

Call us, we understand!

I found Lazard and Associates to be professional and caring. After getting myself into some serious trouble, I am back on track with their help. Avoiding Bankruptcy and doing a proposal has been very helpful in reestablishing my credit quickly. I have recommended them to friends and family and happy to see that it isn’t a cookie cutter approach. They take the time to do what’s best for the client.
