What’s been the most satisfying moment of your Trenches Law career so far?

Closing a wayleave agreement with a managing agent, which allowed our client to progress its build plans across a large area to bring ultrafast broadband to local residents and businesses. This means that the client can now enjoy a faster, more reliable, and greener network. Current research also shows that good connectivity adds value to properties in the local area.

If one of your colleagues could win an award (industry or office-related) who would it be and why?

I’d like to nominate Carole for providing great on-site support to our clients every single day.
