Working with us

What makes Trenches Law different?

Whether a client approaches us for ad-hoc support or a fully-outsourced, end-to-end service, our fees are nothing like those of a typical city law firm. We understand the price-per-premise business case, for instance, so when it comes to wayleave support, that’s how we charge too, rather than by the hour.

This is all part of our commitment to building long-term, honest relationships with our clients – not to mention freeholders and their representatives – and it sees some of the UK’s biggest telecoms brands come back to us time after time. We believe in the power of cooperation and have been known to close multi-million-pound deals in which every party feels like they’ve won.

We purposefully set out to be different – practical, flexible and creative. We hope we’re the legal partner you’ve been looking for…

For an operator entering into a wayleave agreement, it’s very likely that they’ll cover the legal — and often surveyor — fees for the landowner. This is perfectly reasonable because, in most cases, a landowner shouldn’t be ‘out of pocket’. However, the issue then arises not from an operator paying these fees, but in the amount that some law firms are charging to negotiate the contract.
This month, on 28 June, Trenches Law is proud to mark its seventh birthday. Founded in 2017 with a mission to provide straight-talking, business-changing legal support, the company has built an enviable reputation as the go-to expert for telecom operators, tech start-ups, and others. Now, when taking stock of the strides it has made to date, the team celebrates its relentless pursuit for innovation, seasoned expertise, and customer-first approach that has made reaching this milestone possible.
The UK’s EV charging network has undergone seismic changes, since the first major round of installations in 2013. But as today’s government targets pivot, charging companies are under greater scrutiny to ensure infrastructure keeps pace — not least when it comes to the commercial EV chargers powering some of the UK’s most ambitious businesses. Terry Daniell, operations director and commercial EV sector specialist, explores how inviting a bolt-on legal partner from the outset can curb financial, operational, and environmental challenges.
