Demetrius Danas

Demetrius joined us in April 2003 from a niche travel litigation practice where he was a Partner. Since joining IM, he has played a key role in establishing and developing the International Travel Litigation Group (ITLG) in the London office.

He has great experience in acting on behalf of people who sustain injuries whilst abroad and has pursued claims in over 30 jurisdictions worldwide. He also advises travel insurers on the wording of their policies and the viability of their clients' potential personal injury claims.

Chambers & Partners 2011 mentions Demetrius Danas' landmark case 'Thwaites v Aviva', which established that a claimant could bring a claim in the English courts against a French insurer following an accident in France.


Demetrius Danas is described as having “a very good grasp of strategy and tactics; he sees the bigger picture but he is also hot on the detail."

"We were very happy with the outcome of our case, especially as we were initially offered nothing from the Tour Operator. Irwin Mitchell were very professional throughout and we are very happy with the outcome."
