Described by Legal 500 as “the chambers of choice for cross-border claims” and “consistently involved in the most influential travel cases”, 2TG is a recognised leader in all areas of travel and aviation law. We are recognised as the experts in jurisdiction and “choice of law” in cross-border personal injury claims, having been involved in most of the leading cases over the years. What sets us apart from other sets is our real expertise in private international law. Members frequently collaborate with the leading academics in the field both on specific cases and at events for practitioners and academics.

Our range of experience makes us ideally placed to advise in the ever expanding area of travel-related litigation, with counsel able to provide advice and representation in claims of all sizes.

We represent Claimants (as individuals and in group actions) and Defendants. We act for and against insurers, airlines, tour operators, travel agents, hoteliers and cruise operators.

We act across the entire range of travel related litigation, in claims arising from accidents abroad or international travel by road, rail, air and sea. Members of the group handle claims for compensation under English and foreign law as well as under various specific regimes such as the Montreal and Athens Conventions and the Package Travel Regulations. 2TG is particularly well placed to advise on cases which have a cross-over with other practice areas to which members bring particular expertise, including insurance and contractual disputes, liability of carriers, product liability and clinical negligence.

Members of the group frequently argue points of law at appellate level. Recent examples in the Court of Appeal and Supreme Court include: Lungowe v Vedanta [2019] UKSC, Brownlie v Four Seasons [2017] UKSC 80, Moreno v MIB [2016] UKSC 52, Cook v Virgin [2016] 1 WLR 1672, Wagenaar v Weekend Travel [2015] 1 WLR 1968 and Wall v Mutuelle de Poitiers [2014] EWCA Civ 138.

We are very experienced at working on issues of foreign law and 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 a number of languages, including French, German, Spanish, Dutch and Swedish.
