Samantha is responsible for leading Keoghs' public affairs and thought leadership programme. This includes keeping informed with and influencing any policy development that may affect the insurance industry through liaising with representatives within Government, Westminster and other relevant industry stakeholders.
She joined Keoghs in October 2015 from the ABI where she was the policy lead on civil justice issues, responsible for identifying and developing ABI policy in several key areas that directly affect the costs facing and the reputation of the insurance industry. This primarily included work on the implementation of Lord Justice Jackson’s recommendations in the Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders (LASPO) Bill (now Act) and related secondary legislation, as well as lobbying to secure an extension in the claims limit for the RTA Portal, as well as extending the model to employers’ and public liability.
Prior to the ABI, Samantha worked in private practice as a commercial insurance litigation solicitor.
