Outer Temple Chambers hosted a Travel Law Conference in Manchester on 17th March 2022 together with a selection of esteemed guests from the travel law industry. This was a hybrid event and the recordings are now available online. The first talk of the day was “Litigating RTAs Abroad After Brexit”, presented by travel law specialists Carin Hunt of Outer Temple Chambers and Colin Murphy of Leigh Day.
Carin and Colin looked at the background of Brexit and the pre-Brexit position before moving on to applicable law, jurisdiction and what has changed. They then looked at service and enforcement.
Finally, Carin and Colin discussed the post-Brexit position, the role of the MIB in cross border cases and practical considerations for travel lawyers.
Carin Hunt is keenly developing a cross-border element to her personal injury practice, and has drafted pleadings and appeared in court in respect of package travel claims, Odenbreit claims, and claims involving consumer contracts which the Brussels Recast Regulations apply. She also receives instructions in flight delay, Montreal Convention, and Athens Convention claims. Carin’s clinical negligence practice compliments her international injury work and she has recently advised in two cases involving medical treatment abroad.
Colin Murphy is an associate solicitor at Leigh Day specialising in international travel litigation. He acts exclusively for claimants and he has assisted many individuals who have sustained life-changing injuries following accidents abroad.
