In this field, we also offer a full range of legal services to the construction and development industries, including negotiating and drafting contracts, advising on real‑estate transactions and designing risk‑management and loss‑control procedures.

The range of backgrounds of the partners, counsel, associates and staff of Singleton Urquhart enables us to offer an unusual breadth of problem‑solving services in other areas. We handle a wide spectrum of insurance, corporate and commercial cases, and conduct general litigation, including personal‑injury and wrongful‑dismissal cases. We also have extensive grounding and experience in environmental issues and in the spheres of constitutional and administrative law.

We counsel the private and public sectors in developing legal policy positions on a variety of subjects, and we have expertise in drafting legislation and regulations. We are also well placed to provide practical information and legal advice to deal with innumerable regulatory agencies affecting the businesses of our clients.

We often act as counsel to other legal counsel in circumstances where they require our assistance in a particular area where we have acknowledged proficiency and experience ‑ always with the assurance that their clients will remain their clients.

Members of our firm are qualified to practice in Ontario and all Canadian jurisdictions west of Manitoba.
