BLM has been appointed by Unique Vacations (UK) Ltd to join its panel of legal counsel. Unique Vacations act as the UK agents for renowned Caribbean all-inclusive holiday operator Sandals Resorts International. BLM will assist the company with litigation, claims handling, insurance policy coverage, risk management and general legal support.
Unique Vacations (UK) Ltd will benefit from the extensive experience of BLM’s tour operator liability offering in relation to complex overseas personal injury and large loss claims – an industry-wide recommended protection.
Discussing the new appointment: Karl Thompson, Managing Director for Sandals UK & Europe said: “Given our prominent standing in the holiday industry, we felt BLM’s impressive track record working with major international operators made them the ideal partner, and we look forward to working with them.”
Matthew Ford, BLM partner who will head up the team, added: “We’re anticipating an extremely positive partnership with Unique Vacations, as we work to ensure the company’s legal counsel is proactive and robust, minimising the impact of any potential litigation and claims on its day-to-day work. Claims management in relation to overseas leisure is becoming increasingly complex, and an area in which protecting operators, families and holiday makers is of paramount importance.”
