Advising leading motor insurers across a full range of claims

Our motor team advises motor insurers in claims ranging from outsourced, pre-litigation and non-injury claims through to complex, multi-track personal injury cases.

We deal with the defence of thousands of injury and non-injury claims each year. Our team also supports insurers in pursuing recoveries – including contested liability actions, third party recovery claims and enforcement proceedings. We assist and advise on policy indemnity, where necessary, assisting insurers to secure declarations as to policy avoidance.

Our credit hire team comprises market leading experts with decades of experience in handling cases from pre-litigation through to the most complex, high value matters.

We deliver a quality, cost effective service whilst tackling issues including claims inflation, claims leakage and fraud. Our volume work is managed through a custom designed case management system which is tailored to meet each insurer's requirements.

In cooperation with our specialists in fraud and criminal defence we provide a complete service offering for insurers and their insureds and have expertise in defending claims against the emergency services. We have a team of in-house investigators and accident reconstruction experts. By providing clients with access to this range of expertise from a single provider, we streamline the procurement process and deliver cost savings.
