Who we are

Trenches Law has grown to become one of the most renowned legal firms in this fast-growth sector.

Recognising the pace and complexity of the electronic communications industry – not least when it comes to Code powers and wayleaves – we have filled an important gap in the market. And, we believe we’re nothing like your average legal practice. 

Our collegiate is made up of strategic professionals who have lived and breathed the world of fibre, connectivity and technological infrastructure, for most of their careers. We also work hard to recruit specialists local to our clients’ projects as nobody will know the area quite like them. As a result, we speak the same language as our clients, know how and when to take and manage risks that support business growth, and provide proactive advice to aid legislative compliance every step of the way.

Wayleaves

Whether delivering a fully managed service or support on a specific wayleave matter, we initiate proactive dialogue with landowners and local authorities, to enable rapid network expansions.

Legal

Regulated by the SRA and drawing on our portfolio of commercial law expertise, we’re frequently asked to become our clients’ bolt on legal team. Our services are designed to fuel business growth while remaining compliant.

Electric vehicles

Guiding commercial clients through the negotiation of wayleave agreements so they can legally and accurately progress the installation of electric vehicle charge points, at pace.
