Underground/Overhead Damage Claims

Underground/Overhead Damage Claims

As well as offering a full commercial law service to include debt recovery, the practice specialises in underground damage claims pursuing and defending claims for cable and pipe damage for large utilities.  This is the firm's niche area. Managing Partner Mark Harrison has a depth of experience working in this area for major corporate clients, both in pursuit and in defence of claims.

This is a technical area. The practitioner requires familiarity with the specialised legislation covering it in order to work effectively. Just as important, however, is his or her grasp of the often complex engineering issues involved, and the jargon used to express these. For cases to be litigated with the best chances of success, a thorough grounding in all these issues is demanded of the individual solicitor. Through working for some of the UK's largest utility companies, we have developed a formidable level of technical and legal expertise in this arena.

We have a considerable depth of knowledge in evidence recovery that can have a substantial impact on the prospects for success of the typical claim.  We are also able to advise clients on the scope of the recovery possible with particular reference to the sustainability of ‘overhead’ elements of the claim.  Our systems allow us to maintain prompt and responsive client contact and reporting.  This is a specialist area and our clients can rest secure that our service will meet their needs from the start. Where recovery is sought for cable or pipe damage, we will add value.
