Louise Lunt

Financial Director

Louise is a Chartered Accountant with over 25 years post qualified experience.

Louise has been a Financial Director and owner of legal businesses since 2008 and oversees the finance of the firm and compliance with Law Society rules.

Louise supports the legal team with compensation calculations and offering advice where problems or issues are encountered.

Louise is a VW Camper Van owner, a jet ski and powerboat, an LFC supporter and most importantly is due to take her MOD1 and 2 shortly and get out riding with the team. She’s got her sights set on a new BSA Goldstar once she gets that piece of paper in her hand.

Paul McKittrick

Director

Paul has been involved in the legal industry for over 38 years initially as a claims handler but over the last 16 year as a Marketing and Business Development Manager. In Sorry Mate we promote ourselves and our services in a variety of different ways; outdoor exhibitions at regional events and local ride outs, indoor national exhibitions such as Motorcycle Live at the NEC, social media, sponsorships of riders, fund raising for various Air ambulances and relationships with other biker focused groups whether this be clubs, cafes, training academies, dealerships or insurers. Paul’s role is to oversee various aspects of maintaining the brand image and message and wherever possible enhancing our reputation.

His first experience on two wheeled power came via a purple FS1e at a very early age. The bike wasn’t his but belonged to his best friends who had persuaded his Mum and Dad to buy him one. For anyone too young to know these bikes could be ridden under far different legislation than we see today. Basically if you held a provisional driving licence (available to anyone over 16years of age) and the bike was under 50cc with pedals you were good to go. Sadly the experience didn’t end well with him sliding on some gravel and bending one of the bike pedals and his pride.

Since we’ve taken ownership of Sorry Mate exposure to biking has been exponential and with it a renewed interest. Paul ,truly bitten by the biking bug, has made use of the latest office purchase, a Mutt, not the hairy kind but a Mutt Fat Sabbath 125cc which he and two colleagues are looking to gain riding experience on to ensure they have sufficient experience, confidence and the basis for professional training to take that next and crucial step to riding and riding qualification. Paul has in fact now gone on to pass the theory, MOD1 and now MOD2 so now possesses a full licence. Inspired to push on with his riding journey he’s now bought his first bike, a BMW R9T scrambler, uses spare time looking for addons to enhance it’s already (his words) handsome aesthetic and hiding them from his better half, unless she reads this!.

Phil Paxton

Business Development Manager

Phil has had a love for motorbikes from a very young age. He was riding off-road until he could get his license in 1983 and has owned some of the fastest sports bikes over multiple decades. The need for speed took Phil to the racetrack, and he acquired his National Racing Licence at the tender age of 42. Phil raced for Sorrymate in 2013 with our Senior Solicitor, Fergus. They were joined at various times by Jenny Tinmouth (BSB & TT), and Kurt and Matt Wigley (BSB). In 2018 Phil and the Sorrymate 600cc Endurance Team achieved First Place in the ACU 8 Hour 600 Endurance Race at Donnington, where Phil averaged at 1:35.61 a lap, and 93.64mph on a Kawasaki ZX6R (127bhp)

You may have already met Phil at various motorbike shows all over the UK. Phil has been working for Sorrymate for over 12 years managing and coordinating the events team. Phil is an effortless ambassador for Sorrymate as he fully believes in getting other riders the very best help after a non-fault accident.
Phil has brought some very prestigious and honourable associations to work with us over the years, developing strong bonds with the Yorkshire Air Ambulance, Midlands, Essex & Herts, and the Great North Air Ambulance charities. Phil also spearheaded and solidified our ongoing relationship with the One Nine Four Six Marshals, MAG (Motorcycle Action Group) NABD (National Association for Disabled Bikers), creating friendships and business relations with many well know motorcycling companies and services. His official title with Sorrymate is Business Development Manager, however, Phil is always keen to be actively involved in all areas where he can help bikers and spread the word.

Phil’s new baby is a Yamaha 2008 R1. Phil enjoys having no electronic rider aids on the 1000cc bike, developed with input from Valentino Rossi. Traction, brake, launch control and slipper clutch are all up to Phil as part of the ride. His pet hate: Other riders without proper riding gear, especially gloves….
