In brief: Shoosmiths advises clients on the piste

Reading-based Shoosmiths & Harrison is setting up a Ski Line to follow on from the Holiday Hotline which ran this summer. “We already have potential claims against tour operators and ski resorts despite the fact the skiing season is only a few weeks old,” head of the personal injury department Paul Paxton says. As with the Holiday Hotline, injured people are encouraged to telephone from abroad, reversing the charges if necessary.
