Peter E Quegan QVRM TD

  • Year of call: 2010
  • Year of admission: 1991



Peter joined Kenworthy's Chambers as a pupil on a short pupillage in September 2010, after spending the previous 19 years as a solicitor, initially in a high street practice and for the last 15 years in a specialist practice conducting serious personal injury claims.  A member of APIL and a former member of Forces Law which specialised in claims by Armed Forces personnel, he is now undertaking general civil and personal injury work.

Interests Outside the Law:

Peter has and necessarily works on a small fleet of classic cars, mainly from the 1960s and 1970s.  He also has two motorcycles, including a 1954 BSA cafe racer.  He considers little more relaxing than some recreational fabrication and welding.

Reading - mainly military history and political biography.

Having built a substantial extension and a double garage some years ago, Peter now finds his time taken up simply maintaining the existing family home, where no job is too big and he will rarely admit to needing professional help!

Peter remains a serving member of the Territorial Army, which he joined in 1990.  He served a tour in Iraq in 2003 and attended Staff College in 2004.  He was awarded the Queen's Volunteer Reserve Medal in the Birthday Honours List 2007.

Peter is a keen runner and cyclist, although family commitments mean that he now does more short runs than long cycles.
