Marine Issues

We have acted, for a number of years, in the capacity of specialist advisers to the Marine Estate of The Crown Estate. Over this period we have concluded industry-wide agreements with water companies, the offshore oil and gas industry and telecommunications operators. We have agreed rentals and licence terms, settled rent reviews and taken rent reviews to third party.

Our long term involvement with The Crown Estate has given us an excellent understanding of seabed and foreshore related issues.

We also advise in respect of:

  • Offshore underground natural gas storage
  • Carbon capture and storage proposals
  • Electricity interconnectors
  • Other strategic projects
