Peter Lorence



Since qualifying as a solicitor, I have supported clients who have sustained life-changing injuries, in particular advising clients about traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries and multiple traumas. I also represent individuals' families and loved ones following fatal accidents, which includes attending inquests. As an experienced biker and cyclist myself, I lend that understanding to specialising in acting for clients who have been involved in motorcycle or cycling collisions.

I am passionate about securing my clients interim payments wherever possible, so that I can put in place the appropriate rehabilitation, care package and accommodation before the claim has concluded. My colleagues and I work to improve the quality of life for our clients, overcoming the impact of a serious injury as best we can. I also work to ensure that partners and family get the help that they need, as well as support and assist them through the process.

I am also experienced with cases regarding incidents in public places or the workplace, as well as domestic air crashes. I also have expertise in acting for victims of childhood sexual abuse.

What Inspired You To Get Into Law?

I wanted to be able to make a real, tangible difference to people's lives.

What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?

Seeing clients gain access to early rehabilitation, care and support through compensation, and knowing that they can rebuild and restore their quality of life.

What Do You Like About Working At Irwin Mitchell?

The main advantage of working for a large leading firm is the breadth of knowledge and expertise among my colleagues, enabling me to work collaboratively to support my clients, working together to repair shattered lives.

What Do You Do Away From The Office?

Either tackling green lanes on my BMW 1200GS, or - when time and family allow - going away on adventure motorcycle trips, the most recent being to Nepal and Morocco. Closer to home, I enjoy tennis, cycling and spending time with my family.

    Family Campaign To Reduce Motorcyclist Deaths After Dad Killed On Way To Work

    "Although it is more than 18 months since John’s death the family are understandably still struggling to come to terms with how he died in such unexpected circumstances. “Through our work we often see the consequences of what can happen when vulnerable road users, such as motorcyclists, are involved in collisions. The number of motorcyclists killed or seriously injured on London’s roads is disproportionately high to other road users. “We will continue to support John’s family at this emotional time and encourage drivers to be more aware of bikers at all times to help reduce casualty figures.”

    Cyclist Warns Of Dangers Road Users Face After Suffering Fractured Pelvis and ‘Degloving’ After Lorry Knocks Him Off Bike

    Road safety is a cause we are passionate about as we see first-hand on a daily basis the impact that collisions can have on people’s lives – particularly vulnerable road users such as cyclists. Elliot’s experience is a stark reminder of the suffering that some people have to go through following a momentary lapse in concentration from other road users. “We hope that motorists and cyclists take heed of Elliot’s warning so others don’t have to go through the pain our client has had to endure over the past three years. “We’ll continue to work with Elliot to secure the necessary support and rehabilitation he needs to help with his recovery.”
