Travlaw steered us through some tricky regulatory issues arising from our multi-country structure, our internal agreements and how we sell to our customers. They made the process seem easy and were great to work with!

Thank you both ever so much for one of the best webinars I’ve attended. I ploughed my way through the mandatory training webinars recently which, to be honest, I found very confusing and difficult to take in so your webinar was truly a breath of fresh air! Great clear concise slides, easy to follow explanations, interesting examples and really excellent delivery – I was very engaged and the 2 hours flew past! I really got a lot out of it and so appreciate your time and efforts in presenting to us!

Over the years we have placed various pieces of complicated work with the expert team at Travlaw and each time it is a pleasure to work with the people and the business.

No job appears too big or too small and the speed and efficiency is second to none. Working with Travlaw on complex travel related issues is a breath of fresh air, knowing that the team just ‘get it’ and understand the nuances that the industry brings at times.

The engagement from the team at industry events, ABTA and other trade body seminars, makes Travlaw the natural go to firm. With its typical Yorkshire ‘straight talking’ approach helping to make some of those incredibly complicated matters seem quite simple.

Matt and his team provided a first class service throughout, giving me clarity on the specifics of the case and managing my expectations very well. Whilst it was felt that I had a strong defence, I was helped to fully understand the aspects of the claim that could go against me on the day. This allowed me to make a fully informed decision as to how best to proceed.

That we won the case was obviously a bonus, however win or lose I feel that I was given really good advice throughout in an arena which is, thankfully to date, very foreign to me

I have worked with Travlaw for a number of years and in that time have had to deal with many legal issues from revising booking conditions, to negotiating with ground handler contracts, to sensitive employment related matters, to difficult customers.

The team has always been available, supportive, knowledgeable and efficient. The team constantly updates me with what’s going on in the world of travel and helps me negotiate my way around the Package Travel regs and other related legal matters. I was recommended to Travlaw by a colleague in the industry and I have personally recommended the company to many other travel-related contacts.
