Described by the Legal 500 2016 as “the chambers of choice for cross-border claims” 2TG is recognised as a leader in claims arising out of accidents abroad. Our longstanding expertise in choice of law and jurisdiction makes us ideally placed to advise in the ever expanding area of travel-related claims.
As a result of our expertise, members of the group have been involved in most of the leading cases involving issues of jurisdiction and applicable law in a personal injury context in recent years including the following cases which reached the Court of Appeal or Supreme Court: Harding v Wealands  2 AC 1, Cooley v Ramsey  ILPr 27, Bacon v Nacional Suiza  ILPr 46, Cox v Ergo  AC 1379, Wall v Mutuelle de Poitiers 3 All ER 340, Brownlie v Four Seasons  1 WLR 1814, Wagenaar v Weekend Travel  1 WLR 1968, Cook v Virgin  1 WLR 1672 and Moreno v MIB  1 WLR 3194. In addition, members of the group acted in the landmark decision in Milner v Carnival  3 All ER 701 in which the Court of Appeal laid down guidelines for the assessment of damages in holiday claims.
We act for claimants and defendants and for and against insurers (domestic and foreign), tour operators, travel agents, hoteliers, cruise operators and airlines. We are able to provide advice and representation for claims of all sizes.
In a cross-border context, we advise on insurance, product liability, employer’s liability, employment and commercial and contractual disputes. We are involved in all the related intricate and hotly argued jurisdictional issues and aspects of private international law. We regularly work with foreign lawyers in the increasing numbers of cases in which the English court is required to apply foreign law.
We work in French, German, Spanish and Swedish.
