Active across a range of matters, the members at Devereux act for major local and overseas telecom and infrastructure providers. In BT v TalkTalk Communications Limited, Graham Read KC acted on behalf of BT, seeking £16m of electronic communication service payments allegedly withheld by TalkTalk. Also acting on this case was Rory Cochrane, who further represented BT in a nuisance claim in connection with water damage at a claimant’s basement, alleged to have been caused by one of BT’s chambers. Shaen Catherwood acted for the defendant in Amadeo v BT, a claim for alleged damages in combination with an injunction to restrain acts of trespass and nuisance, targeted at independent sub-contractors on site – a dispute now settled.
