Katie Raby

Associate Solicitor

Katie joined Travlaw in May 2014 after having extensive experience working within the travel industry since graduating from the University of Huddersfield in 2001 with a 2:1 BA Hons in Hospitality & Tourism Management. Her previous role before joining Travlaw involved handling high value legal recoveries for a large well known tour operator. As such, she has experience in the areas of debt recovery and cross-border litigation. As her interest in travel law developed, Katie decided to go back to university and has since completed the Graduate Diploma in Law in 2014 and obtained a distinction in her LPC, graduating top of her class in 2016 ahead of qualifying as a Solicitor at Travlaw where she is now focused on assisting our clients with their various needs!

Given the implementation of the new Package Travel and Linked Travel Arrangement Regulations 2018 and GDPR, the bulk of her current work involves drafting and updating of booking conditions, supplier agreements and privacy policies to name a few. She also has experience within our litigation team here at Travlaw and has been involved in high volume PI litigation and the defence of a variety of holiday claims. This ranges from overseas recoveries, personal injury claims at a variety of levels, quality complaints and many other areas of holiday-related civil litigation.

Outside of work, Katie is a busy mum to three young boys and, of course, loves to travel!

My favourite place

My favourite place is Sardinia, more specifically, the town of Alghero and the surrounding area. The beautiful marina and beaches have the back drop of the imposing sight of Capo Caccia, also known as “the sleeping giant”. Capo Caccia houses many caves, the most famous being ‘Grotto di Nettune’ which you can explore by boat. Meander down the cobbled streets of the old town then rest your legs with an espresso at Café Latino, which overlooks the harbour and watch the world go by.

If you’re a wine lover like me, then a visit to the Sella & Mosca vineyard is definitely worthwhile – the wines are amazing!

The locals are fiercely proud of their heritage and culture with street names and the food alike signifying the links to their Catalan roots. Overall it is a fabulous place to visit. I would live there if I could!
