Sharon Vogel is a Partner and acts as Co-Chair of Singleton Urquhart Reynolds Vogel LLP’s Construction and Infrastructure Law Group.

Her construction practice primarily involves construction disputes relating to large-scale infrastructure, industrial, and commercial projects including highways, railways, tunnels, pipelines, mines, industrial facilities, hospitals, manufacturing plants, commercial buildings and condominiums in various jurisdictions. She specializes in the negotiation, mediation, arbitration and litigation of construction disputes, including construction liens, breach of contract, breach of trust, delays, surety bonds, construction insurance, and architects’ and engineers’ errors and omissions.

She has served as counsel to numerous government agencies, municipalities, private owners, and contractors to successfully manage delays and other legal issues on high-profile transportation, transit, energy, hospitals, mines, manufacturing facilities, water and wastewater, schools, and industrial, commercial, and institutional projects.

Together with her colleague Bruce Reynolds, she has played an important role in helping the Ontario government modernize the province’s construction law and helping to shape the Construction Act. Among the changes to the legislation are the creation of a prompt payment framework and the introduction of a mandatory dispute resolution system.

Sharon was also retained as co-counsel by the federal government to assist in the introduction of new legislation on prompt payment and adjudication. She co-authored the independent expert report Building a Federal Framework for Prompt Payment and Adjudication.

She is a Senior Fellow at the University of Melbourne, teaching International Construction Law. She is co-author of the text, A Guide to Canadian Construction Insurance Law.
