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.

    Sexual Abuse Survivor Speaks Of ‘Relief’ After Former Primary School Teacher Is Sentenced

    Many people who suffer sexual abuse as a child can be affected by the ordeal for the rest of their lives and their experiences can have a significant impact on the way they develop as an adult and how they live. “Through our work we deal with cases, such as this one, where children were targeted by the people who they should have been able to trust. “This woman has been extremely courageous to speak out about the abuse she suffered and we hope that what happened to her, and others, by Gordon Fleming will encourage organisations to learn from the past and implement every possible measure to protect vulnerable young people in the future. “I also hope the knowledge that Gordon Fleming has been jailed will encourage others who have survived his abuse to come forward and be heard. “We are now representing one such survivor and hope to secure a settlement to ensure she is able to access the therapy and support she needs to come to terms with what happened and make progress with her life."

    Settlement For Family Of Elderly Man Who Died After Being Hit By Car As He Crossed The Road

    “This is an extremely tragic case in which a very active, healthy and caring man has died after never fully recovering from the results of an awful road traffic collision that could have been avoided. “Whilst nothing can change what has happened, we hope that this settlement will at least provide some comfort to the family, as it will ensure that his widow can afford the care and support she requires in Adam’s absence “We also hope that this proves to be an important reminder on road safety and the terrible consequences that collisions can have on those involved. Behind every incident there are families and loved ones whose lives are often turned upside down by such incidents.”

    “We see first-hand the devastating impact serious collisions, such as Mark’s, have on victims. It is therefore imperative that drivers are aware of vulnerable road users around them and take precautions to ensure their driving behaviour does not put others at risk. “Mark suffered multiple serious injuries and almost two years on was still recovering; something that not only heavily impacted on his independence but his business too. “By securing the settlement, Mark has been able to offset some of his business losses, achieve compensation for his painful and debilitating injuries and fund the shoulder and dental treatment that he will need in the future.”

    “The insurers have now accepted the driver was responsible for this serious accident, which put Agata’s life in danger and left her with life-changing injuries.

"Now that we have reached this important milestone we can arrange further rehabilitation for Agata that will help her to continue making the progress she has so far. The admission of liability will enable us to agree a settlement for the injuries she suffered, the impact the crash has had on her life and any future treatment she may require, such as a knee replacement.”
