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 expanding area of travel-related claims. As a result of our expertise members of the group have been involved in many, if not most, of the leading cases involving issues of jurisdiction and applicable law in a personal injury context in recent years including: Hulse v Chambers  1 WLR, Harding v Wealands  2 AC 1, 2386, Cooley v Ramsey  ILPr 27, Jacobs v Motor Insurers Bureau  1 WLR 2609, Bacon v Nacional Suiza  ILPr 46, Cox v Ergo Versicherung AG  EWHC 2806 (QB). 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 also advise on insurance, product liability, employer’s liability 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 German, French, Spanish and Swedish.
