Temple Legal Protection has been proud to partner with Kent Law Society (KLS) for a second year. Last year we agreed to work more closely in conjunction with KLS to support one of our valued customers Nick Fairweather (CEO and Head of Medical Negligence at Fairweathers) during his presidential year.
After an extremely rewarding year meeting the members of KLS and supporting both personal development and social events held by the society we are delighted to be continuing the partnership during Louise Duckett’s presidential year.
Louise Duckett (pictured right) kicked off her Presidential year in style at the sell-out Kent Law Society Annual Dinner and Awards on 12 May at the Mercure Great Danes Hotel in Maidstone. In her welcome speech Louise said: “As I have asked you all to pledge your time… it’s only fair that I will be making my own pledge. Every month of my Presidential term, I pledge to enter an event or activity to try to raise funds by way of sponsorship… including runs, sea dips and cycling. “So watch out on social media for the first event – I would welcome your company along the way.”
We look forward to supporting and working closely with KLS again this year.

Laurence started at Temple Legal Protection in 2006 where he was IT Manager until 2017, when promotion to Operations Director saw him join the board of the company. This was followed in June 2019 with his appointment as Managing Director to succeed Chris Wait, the founding MD. Following in those footsteps was a challenge relished by Laurence, and one with the full support of Chris, who became Chairman of the board of directors.
Laurence’s hands-on experience at the heart of the business running the IT systems over many years and his proven expertise in a fast-moving ATE/litigation insurance market has contributed to the respected position in the market place Temple now occupies.
Resting on laurels is not Laurence’s style. His passion and determination to provide market-leading legal expenses insurance products and a total commitment to customer service for partner law firms and brokers put him in the ideal position to lead the business.
Prominent litigators, contemporaries and colleagues speak of Laurence’s sound commercial judgement, technical excellence and agility in product development – all backed by a commitment to robust underwriting principles. This has led to Temple building long-term commercial relationships with leading law firms in the commercial litigation, clinical negligence and personal injury sectors.
Laurence is a Chartered Insurance Underwriting Agent, and associate member of the Chartered Insurance Institute.
