We ensure that fraudulent insurance claims are successfully challenged

Our award-winning insurance fraud team is trusted by clients to ensure fraudulent claims are successfully challenged and repudiated. Clients include major insurers, claims handlers, large corporates, public bodies and private organisations.

The team is skilled in all areas of insurance fraud, from the detection and management of suspicious claims, to advising clients on the best fraud prevention strategies.

We have achieved a series of milestone 'firsts' in the fraud arena, including the first private prosecution for a public liability claim; the largest award of exemplary damages in a Part 20 Counter Claim for deceit; the highest number of successfully completed contempt cases in the industry; resolving the first industrywide EL/PL fraud ring and the largest known cross industry motor fraud ring to date.

With a global reach and a dedicated in-house intelligence team we offer a unique opportunity for cross-border intelligence sharing and service provision.

We have made significant investment in innovative systems to improve our counter-fraud service. These include Genesis, a bespoke fraud detection and data interrogation application, and Sentinel which is a fraud litigation decision-making tool utilising artificial intelligence.

Our fraud expertise encompasses a wide range of insurance lines and work disciplines including motor (such as phantom passengers, Low Velocity Impact – LVI, induced accidents and staged / contrived incidents), liability, disease (including suspicious Noise Induced Hearing Loss – NIHL), property (including arson, theft, burglary and stolen vehicles), fraud rings and fabricated or exaggerated claims across all lines of business.
