Additionally, we support clients on matters related to water pollution, contamination, odour and noise.
Our specialist team assists with third party recoveries where utility apparatus has been negligently damaged and losses have been incurred. We will also recover damages from third parties where negligence has led to contamination or nuisance and associated losses.
Our experienced water utilities team closely supports clients in the event of an incident, advising on the preservation and gathering of evidence, liability, quantum, recovery and on the pre-litigation defence of a claim.
