Telecoms and utilities

We understand the interface between telecoms and utility companies, land and property owners and the public sector. Our telecoms lawyers work closely with telecommunication operators and site providers, sharing their specialist knowledge and advice on a wide range of areas.

Winckworth Sherwood’s multi-disciplinary team is made up of lawyers specialising in radio cell site property, property litigation, regulatory law, commercial contracts, planning and construction.

We have an understanding of an operator’s requirements with regard to equipment and the need to upgrade to move with technological advances.

We have extensive experience in advising the utilities sector, including water and sewerage undertakers, gas transporters, public communications and others.

We have also recently acted in relation to schemes for renewable sources of energy, such as wind and wave power.

The law relating to utilities has become increasingly complex since privatisation in the late 20th century. Our work in this field requires us to keep up to date both with legal changes and with technical developments.
