Utilities & Infrastructure

We are experienced in all aspects of utilities and infrastructure both in respect of construction and delivery and in respect of regulation. We routinely deal with claims relating to gas, electricity, water, sewerage and infrastructure. For example, we regularly advise on the shipping, transportation and supply of gas through pipes, and the generation, transmission, distribution and supply of electricity.

The statutory and regulatory framework within the utility sectors can be very complicated and our barristers successfully appear on behalf of clients before the regulators and assist in liaising with the relevant regulatory authorities, providing guidance for the industries.

Our barristers also have experience of major engineering and civil engineering claims that accompany the procurement and delivery of facilities, such as sewerage plants and power stations, and the pipelines and supply lines that feed the system. We also deal with oil and gas rig and pipeline work and some of our barristers have specialist knowledge of the marine aspects of oil and gas rig work.
For examples of our recent work, see our case reports to the right.

Our areas of work include: 

  • Connection agreements (standard and bespoke)
  • Terms of supply
  • Pricing (including metering issues)
  • Statutory powers of access
  • Rules relating to private supplies
