Lauren Hutchins

Lauren entered the world of claims in 2014, joining a prominent claimant law firm. She rose through the ranks to become a litigation claims handler, dealing with road traffic accident claims through the MOJ Claims Portal including litigated cases from the point of issue to the disposal hearing. She then joined Covea Insurance where she was responsible for handling defence cases on high value/complex losses. Lauren also had responsibility for ensuring that high value and complex cases were reported to reinsurers and dealing with the necessary communications.

During her career, Lauren has gained extensive experience dealing with casualty, RTA, public, employers and products liability claims, in addition to some property losses and has also assisted with reinsurance claims. In her previous roles, Lauren has promoted best practice through the peer review process within her team and by acting as a referral point for junior team members.

Lauren joined Belvedere Mead in 2021 as a “return to work mum” following a short break to raise her family and has since been assisting in the delivery of various projects giving her exposure to the nuances of the London Speciality Claims market. Lauren has also started studying for her Cert CII (London Market) qualification.
