Singleton Urquhart Reynolds Vogel LLP lawyer Bruce Reynolds has been named Global Construction Lawyer of the Year for 2018 by Who’s Who Legal.
The award is based on research, interviews and nominations from industry and client participants who, according to Who’s Who Legal, “unequivocally identified (Bruce) as the leader in this practice area.”
“I am thrilled to receive this award,” Reynolds said from London where he received the award. “To be recognized for the work we do, and in a category with so many other respected colleagues is particularly rewarding.”
Reynolds was previously nominated as Construction Lawyer of the Year by Benchmark Canada, a title he received in 2017, and, was named by Canadian Lawyer Magazine as one of the Top 25 Most Influential Lawyers in Canada for 2017.
“The Firm congratulates Bruce on this achievement,” said managing partner John Singleton. “This award is still further confirmation of international recognition being given to Bruce’s skills and expertise, and how fortunate we are to have him as part of our national team.”
Reynolds has been practising construction and infrastructure law for more than 30 years and is perhaps best known for his more recent work as Counsel for the Ontario Government in conducting a review of Ontario’s Construction Lien Act and delivering a report with 101 recommendations, 98 of which were eventually adopted and became the basis for Ontario’s Construction Act, which received Royal Assent on Dec. 12, 2017.
Singleton Reynolds opened its doors in January of this year, is handling some of the construction industry’s most complex cases and is at the forefront of developing public policy for the construction industry, the practice said in a news release.
