A member of the legal team of the Association of British Travels Agents has joined the specialist travel and leisure law unit at City practice Nicholson Graham & Jones. The firm says the appointment of Fergus Collins is the first time an ABTA lawyer has moved to private practice. Collins said of his move: "One of the areas where I am most keen to draw on my ABTA experience, and something I know my former colleagues are also keen for me to focus on, is in helping clients prevent needless breaches of the ABTA codes of conduct." His appointment follows the arrival at the unit of leading shipping and aviation specialist Austen Hall, who came to the firm when it merged with West End practice Brechers last year. The travel and leisure unit is headed by partner Tim Robinson.
