Legal Advice Cables & Pipelines

Knowledge of legal matters relating to cables and pipelines is one of our specialisations. Because the underground is becoming increasingly crowded. A better arrangement is required in which all data is carefully registered and visualised. Legal frameworks are necessary for a good structure in the subsurface. The conditioning of cables and pipes has various, complex legal components. And that is exactly what we have been doing for years.

Legal specialists in the field of cables and pipes

GOconnectIT wants these processes to run smoothly and has experienced legal advisors with knowledge of both the legal, financial and technical, substantive aspects of the process. We are happy to pass on this knowledge and expertise in order to bring about a structural improvement in the way in which cables and pipelines are dealt with within projects.

From assessing and drawing up requests for adjustment, project agreements and final decisions to giving advice on the interpretation of complex cost components. But also advice on more general doctrines such as breach of contract and tort, the latter for example in the case of excavation damage. In addition, we assist our clients in objection and appeal proceedings.

Want to expand your legal knowledge?

We provide tailor-made courses and training in the field of cable and pipeline conditioning for small and large groups. Subjects that can be covered during a training course are:

  • Process steps

We can also go deeper into the legal aspects of cables and pipelines, such as administrative law, telecommunications law, excavation damage, regulations and permits, enforcement and sanctions.
