Alex Carington12 King’s Bench Walk ‘A skilled and able junior. An affable, pleasant and well-prepared opponent.’

12 King’s Bench Walk has expertise not only in the mainstream of travel and tour operator litigation, but in heavyweight cross-border personal injury cases. The set counts on the expertise of William Audland KC, who appeared in the Supreme Court in X v Kuoni Travel, the first time that the scope of liability under the package travel regulations had been considered at that level; the matter concerned the rape of a British woman by a hotel employee in Sri Lanka. Another key member of the team is Alex Carington  – he recently acted for a tour operator in a case where the claimants, who was sleeping at the time, were attacked by a lion, leaving one claimant with his arm almost completely torn off and the other with psychiatric injuries.
