Founded in 1982 on a construction litigation platform, Singleton Reynolds has established itself as a leading construction firm in Canada, and continues to draw a large volume of assignments related to all aspects of the construction and infrastructure sectors. We are proud to provide service to our clients in areas related to the construction and infrastructure industry.
Our team of highly skilled, experienced and industry-recognized lawyers ensure that our clients receive practical, holistic advice that contemplates not only all legal aspects of their issues, but the business and construction aspects as well.
Our construction lawyers draw on their significant experience, and deep understanding of the construction industry, to provide clients with cost-effective and innovative solutions to the wide variety of issues they face in their day-to-day operations. We are unrivaled in our ability to devise creative solutions to both standard and unique problems.
We have designed risk management and loss-control programs for a variety of participants in the industry and have represented our clients at all levels of court in Canada, as well as in every other dispute resolution forum – including structured negotiations, mediation, domestic and international arbitration, dispute review boards, independent certifier disputes, and adjudication. We offer clients a complete project lifecycle service, developed through involvement in all stages of the construction process.
Our team has unparalleled depth and experience in understanding and resolving the multiple legal issues faced by the construction and infrastructure industries. Some examples of our experience include:

Project Advice & Dispute Avoidance
We are regularly engaged in dispute resolution through mediation, arbitration, dispute resolution boards, referees, adjudication, and all other dispute resolution forums in matters involving the entire gamut of construction issues, including construction deficiencies, design errors, and project delay. As a result, we are intimately acquainted with the procedural rules and other legal instruments that govern these proceedings, including with respect to ICC, LCIA, ADRIC, and other institutional arbitrations governed under applicable rules (such as UNCITRAL, IBA, and otherwise).
Our firm is proud to have contributed to significant advancements in construction legislation across Canada over the years, including most prominently with respect to the modernization of the Construction Lien Act (now the Construction Act) and its implementation of prompt payment and statutory adjudication in Ontario, which was then adopted across several more provinces, as well as our involvement in the creation of the Federal Prompt Payment for Construction Work Act, which applies to federal construction projects.
As a result, we have unparalleled knowledge of these issues, and regularly apply it to our clients’ benefit.
We are regularly asked to write and teach on construction and arbitration topics in publications and institutions across several continents, ensuring that we have a deep grasp and up-to-date understanding of the most recent developments in construction and arbitration law across the world.
