Volume Utilities Networks
We are the UK’s largest specialist legal provider of bespoke volume property solutions for the energy sector. Our expert team work closely with electricity operators, water suppliers and gas transporters, as well as fibre-optic broadband utilities network providers.
Recognised as industry-leading innovators, our collaborative partnerships lead the way in gaining efficiencies for our clients. We devised a collaborative partnerships protocol for Western Power Distribution to expedite new electricity connections legals, which achieved an impressive 74% increase in completions within 50 days of being instructed.
Our experience, technology and resources enable us to take on and complete hundreds of transactions each month and we regularly manage a caseload of thousands of live matters.
We are at the forefront of legal developments and act as networks champions to bring about improvements for the energy sector. We successfully challenged HM Land Registry’s view of what is ‘valuable consideration’, which resulted in a change of guidelines to protect the interests of all utilities who enter into property transactions for nominal or no financial consideration.
Our clients include Western Power Distribution (WPD), UK Power Networks, Electricity North West, Dwr Cymru and several independent distribution network operators, gas transporters and fibre optic network providers.
We provide outstanding levels of client and customer care combined with high-speed turnaround and value for money without compromising professionalism or quality.
In other words, we give clients the ‘networks edge’.
