Chris is a specialist in Aviation Law and in 2008 he was admitted to the Roll of Solicitors. He has since undertaken a consultancy role with the Group Legal Department at Monarch Airlines Limited. He regularly assists the airline and its associated companies, in particular Cosmos Holidays Plc, in various court proceedings.
In this role, Chris deals with live issues in the Aviation and Travel related industries such as the Montreal Convention 1999, the Denied Boarding Regulations 2004 and the Package Travel Regulations 1992. Chris also acts as a legal consultant to two national travel companies and has represented them both before the County Court.
Aviation Law is a rare legal specialism, and Chris holds a Private Pilots Licence with IMC rating and has significant flying experience which ensures that the Aviation Law units which he teaches relate to reality particularly well (March, 2009).
