Katie Raby

Senior 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, supplier contracts and cross-border litigation. As her interest in travel law developed, Katie returned to university and completed the Graduate Diploma in Law in 2014 subsequently then obtaining a distinction in her LPC and graduating top of her class on completion of her studies in 2016.

Katie qualified as a Solicitor at Travlaw in January 2020 and is now an Senior Associate within our Commercial Team.

Katie’s day to day work generally consists of assisting clients with their commercial needs. This typically includes the drafting and updating of booking conditions (both consumer and business facing), supplier agreements, privacy policies and other travel related agreements, as well as providing regulatory guidance and advice regarding the Package Travel Regulations and ATOL Regulations.

Outside of work, Katie is a busy mum to four 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.
