Peter Allchorne's Expertise

 

Peter Allchorne

Pete specialises in complex motor, employers’ liability and public liability claims. He has over 20 years’ experience advising a broad range of insurance clients, with a particular interest in the transport and logistics sector.

Pete’s key clients include Admiral and Zurich. He also works closely with Gibraltar regulated insurers. Working with the firm’s Strategic Litigation Unit, Pete is a regular commentator and panellist on issues impacting the motor insurance market. This includes the civil justice reform, and the development of automated vehicle technologies and their impact on motor insurers.

Pete leads the firm’s specialist interest group looking at the legal and insurance implications for connected and automated vehicles, and the wider Internet of Things, working closely with other member firms of the Legalign Global alliance.

Within the firm’s Claims Solutions Group, Pete leads the ‘Innovations Lab’, the research and development hub responsible for developing new innovative claims solutions to benefit our clients, where he works closely with the firm’s technology law team. He is also a member of the firm’s Business Improvement & Change Steering Group, which scrutinises and prioritises strategic projects and investment in digital solutions.

Relevant experience includes:

  • Working with a number of composite motor insurer ‘futures’ teams, advising on issues of regulation and legislation.
  • Drafting responses on behalf of the firm to both government and Law Commission consultations on issues relating to vehicle automation.
  • Sitting as a legal expert on various panels at key motor insurance industry events, including both the Association of British Insurers’ annual motor conference and specialist Automated Vehicles conference.
  • Acting as a regular commentator on developments in vehicle automation, including the implications of the Automated and Electric Vehicles Act 2018.
  • Recently leading the firm’s ‘Informed Insurance’ global thought leadership article on ‘The road to automation’.
  • Chairing an ‘Informed Insurance’ seminar at which a panel of experts from Germany, Australasia and USA discussed issues of regulation, legislation, data, cyber risk and infrastructure, and the Law Commission of England & Wales/Scottish Law Commission presented on its current three year review of necessary changes in UK laws to facilitate automated driving systems.

Pete was formerly the head of the Forum of Insurance Lawyers’ Motor Sector Focus Team and previously sat on the National Committee. He was also a former member of the Expert Audit and Peer Review sub-committee of MedCo.

In addition, he is currently a member of the Law Society and the Gibraltar Insurance Institute. Via the firm’s Associate Membership, he also collaborates extensively with the ABI. Having developed a specialist interest in the rapidly developing areas of automated vehicle technologies, Pete recently led on the firm’s thought leadership piece, ‘The drive for automation’, in conjunction with its Legalign Global partners, as part of its Informed Insurance publication.
