A leading set specialising in commercial, construction, insurance and property law


Our expert team of barristers acts on behalf of individuals, tour operators and insurers, across the full range of travel related work with a particular focus on holiday injury and illness claims in the UK and worldwide. As a result of our extensive international experience, we are able to deal with overseas and multi-jurisdictional cases and we are happy to work with teams of UK and foreign qualified lawyers.

We are also experienced in group litigation and working with action groups, for example in relation to sickness outbreaks in holiday resorts and on cruise ships. We often put together specialist teams to suit any size of case.

Our barristers also provide advice on consumer contract issues such as booking and ticketing problems, cancellations, lost and damaged luggage, misrepresentation and holiday disappointment.

We deal with commercial issues such as supplier and agency agreements, ship and aircraft charter, ship and aircraft building, ground crews and support contracts, marketing and advertising, e-commerce, business and employment issues.
