Meeting your requirements… Our Counter Fraud team consists of experienced lawyers and intelligence analysts, who can provide bespoke products to suit your requirements. These include:

• Fraud Intelligence Report We have access to large numbers of intelligence databases which we analyse to produce reports on Claimant, Company or Vehicle profiling. These in-depth reports provide an objective view, along with recommendations to allow you to make the most informed decisions.

• Pre-Litigation Advice Crucial in potential fraud claims; the earlier evidence is gathered, the better the defence is likely to be. For instance, the Court may not consider a defence if certain steps were not taken at pre-litigation stage. Therefore, we investigate each claim to find out if fraud is present or not and then advise you of the outcome. This approach enables you to make the decision to settle claims earlier, resulting in substantial savings in litigation costs.
