About

Provided by Fox Williams LLP

The travel industry is highly regulated, with a body of travel-specific regulation and, in some markets, a requirement to register or to obtain a licence to do business. Travel companies also need to be concerned about other areas of regulation, including laws relating to data protection, advertising and marketing and financial services.

The volume of regulation can seem overwhelming and we understand the importance of providing commercial and practical advice. Our clients are not in the business of regulatory compliance, they are in the business of selling travel services. It is our role to help guide you through the regulations in a way which is sensible, user-friendly and pragmatic.

We help our clients to grow, by launching new travel products and by entering new markets. We also help our clients to acquire or sell businesses, as well as resolving regulatory and commercial disputes which may arise.
