Leeward acts on a regular basis as a partner of telecom companies in the various aspects of their B2C and B2B relations.
Over the years, Leeward has built in-depth expertise in the contractual and liability issues faced by telecom operators on a daily basis. This ranges from debt collection files to legal issues relating to infrastructure damage.
In order to be able to provide each house with various utilities, there are approximately 600,000 underground cables and pipes in Flanders alone. However, when carrying out groundwork or excavation work, damage is often caused to these cables. In view of their technical nature, such files require know-how concerning the KLIP decree, the contractor's obligation to provide information and the obligation to investigate the underground infrastructure. A thorough knowledge of the subject matter, complemented by and extensive collection of case law on cable damage, is Leeward's strong asset in these cases.
