The Pinsent Masons team was lead by Corporate Partners Gregg Davison and Amie Norris assisted by Rachael McGurgan and Rob Cunningham.

Gregg Davison commented:

"We are delighted to have advised Livingbridge and Key Travel's impressive management team through this process, having also acted for Livingbridge on their initial investment in 2013 and supported the business in the years since. This was the second significant transaction in the travel sector which we have advised on in recent weeks, following the sale of Travel Counsellors."
