René Khayat, LL. B. 1988
Vice President, Legal and Regulatory Affairs, Cavalia
“As Vice President and General Counsel, Legal and Business Affairs for Cirque du Soleil, it was a fascinating experience to negotiate with a world-class partner like Apple to create a production inspired by the music of The Beatles. It was an incredible feeling to be there from the first discussions and throughout the production process of the wonderful Love project. I am now the Vice President, Legal and Regulatory Affairs for Cavalia where I contribute to the growth of this Quebec-based company with a global reach in the field of live entertainment by sharing my business experience and expertise in the entertainment industry.”
