Professional Background

Mollie Deyong is an Associate in the Construction and Infrastructure Practice Group at Singleton Urquhart Reynolds Vogel LLP. Mollie has a steadfast interest in infrastructure projects and has specialized in construction and infrastructure since the outset of her legal career.

She works with clients both large and small representing their interests in respect of a myriad of construction-related issues. She is a construction industry lawyer with experience in large-scale infrastructure disputes, negotiation, mediation, multi-party litigation, arbitration, procurement matters and resolving legal issues that arise on construction projects in both Ontario and British Columbia. She has experience working for large infrastructure owners, mid-size project owners and developers, contractors, and design professionals.

Mollie has also developed a transactional practice in drafting and negotiating construction and services contracts, and has extensive experience with both standard form and bespoke contracts of varying degrees of complexity. Mollie has assisted in the preparation and negotiation of a variety of design-build contracts, construction (design-bid-build) contracts, supply contracts and professional services contracts.

As her practice includes both front-end transactional work and dispute resolution for construction industry clients, Mollie is uniquely positioned to assess her clients’ needs, delivering cradle-to-grave construction project advice with a focus on service excellence.
