Utility companies have particular interests and unique requirements. Their rights and responsibilities often stem from their statutory foundations and then acquisition of property and rights as part of their utility undertakings from predecessor local authorities.
The team’s non-contentious caseload includes operational property work headed by Simon Ellis. This work focuses on the enhancement and development of networks and obtaining rights by way of options, licences and easements, as well as leasehold and freehold acquisitions and redundant asset disposal.
Like most large organisations utility companies have vehicle fleets and the firm’s specialist Transport Unit, headed by Partner Tim Culpin has advised on transport issues and offers review and audit services.
