        Fraud

        Claim fraud continues to be the insurance industry’s greatest risk, costing insurers billions every year.

        Our counter fraud specialists take a decisive line on your behalf. Our work spans suspicious claims across all policy classes, from motor fraud to high value property and commercial cases, as well as general insurance fraud claims including public liability, household, holiday, PMI and pet insurance fraud.

        As well as defence, we also provide strategies to deter and identify fraud more effectively. By combining industry experience, innovation and deep knowledge with our market-leading analytical software suite we are able to identify, collate and convert data into evidence.

        Our specialist Fraud Rings unit uses this to detect patterns and link claims, working collaboratively with clients to build winning litigation strategies as well as low cost claimant validation, helping to improve case management. Working for some of the largest businesses and insurers in the industry our clients tell us that our work saves them millions of pounds each year.
