Singleton Urquhart Reynolds Vogel LLP

Singleton Urquhart Reynolds Vogel LLP is a Canadian law firm with offices in both Vancouver and Toronto. Since our beginnings, we have grown to a team of nearly 60 lawyers and over 100 employees. We recently expanded into the Toronto market, merging our well-known and respected Vancouver practice with the practices of senior commercial litigation, and senior construction and infrastructure lawyers in Toronto. This combination of geography and experience forms a powerful national platform from which to better serve our clients across the country.

We offer an extensive range of legal services in the areas of construction and infrastructure, commercial litigation, commercial real estate, corporate commercial, insurance defence, professional liability, product liability, workplace law, and business immigration.

Our core area of practice is construction and infrastructure law, with over half of the lawyers in the firm focused on this area. Our construction lawyers are recognised practitioners, litigators, solicitors and engineers who have a wealth of experience to draw on.

We have a strong history of assisting clients with a variety of projects in both British Columbia and Ontario. We work on all matters in our space including large-scale infrastructure, institutional, industrial, and commercial projects such as highways, railways, tunnels, pipelines, mines, industrial facilities, schools and other education facilities, hospitals, manufacturing plants, commercial buildings and condominiums.

Bruce Reynolds and Sharon Vogel were also co-counsel to the Ontario government preparing a report and guiding the legislative drafting of Ontario’s Construction Act. As such, they are uniquely positioned to advise clients on the effects of the new Act. Currently, they have been retained to act for the government of Canada to conduct a review of federal legislation on the issues of prompt payment and adjudication for federal construction projects.


A Client-Focused Approach

At Singleton Urquhart Reynolds Vogel LLP we have developed our firm with a fundamental understanding that our clients deserve exceptional legal service that is delivered in a manner that is honest, creative, clear, relatable, flexible and cost effective.

We provide solutions customised to our clients’ needs in various sectors including education, healthcare, government and industry. We help our clients seize emerging opportunities and find solutions to complex legal problems.

Our lawyers have an impeccable sense of the challenges that can arise within their areas of expertise and are committed to work together across disciplines to find the best solutions for our clients.


Community Involvement and Pro Bono Work

Beyond our commitment to our staff and our clients, our firm is also committed to the communities in which we have been able to grow and thrive. In that regard, we as a firm, and our individual members, are involved in a variety of community-oriented organisations.

We also encourage our lawyers to get involved with pro bono work by offering each lawyer credits every year for time spent providing legal services on pro bono files that reflect their individual interests and commitments.

Members of our firm have participated over the years as instructors in various construction courses taught at the University of Toronto and Osgoode Hall. John Singleton, the firm’s managing partner, is an adjunct professor of construction law at the University of British Columbia and a guest lecturer at Stanford University. All are keenly interested in education as it relates to their practice and the development of future experts in the area of construction law.
