          Scotland Counter Fraud

          In a jurisdiction with no CPR, an advantageous costs regime, and a current tolerance for referral fees, we aim to use our intelligence, profiling and analytics to ensure our clients are ahead of the curve in tackling fraud in Scotland.

          As an international firm, we understand the importance of providing tailored, locally-based expertise.  We’re the only legal supplier to offer a truly national UK insurance counter fraud team, making us uniquely placed to help Scottish insurers.

          We offer a one stop shop fraud service covering your needs around detection, prevention and sanctions.  From specialist expertise in motor, EL/PL, large loss, commercial and financial fraud through to cross-class services including risk consultancy advice, fraud detection advice and toolkits, we can also assist with a full range of sanctions including financial recoveries, prosecution and PR management, as well as providing strategic advice and political lobbying services.

          What sets us apart, however, is our commitment to understanding client requirements and aspirations, before working collaboratively with you to develop tailored, practical solutions. We are proud to have been recognised for our expertise. In 2017 we were awarded Intelligence Team of the Year at the Insurance Post Fraud Awards, (for work tracking the migration of organised fraud into Scotland) and in both 2017 and 2018 we received the Scott & Co Legal Innovation in Practice award (for the use of data analytics and intelligence, combined with profiling in handling Scottish fraud). We were also commended in the 2018 'Creating a New Standard' category in the Financial Times Innovative Lawyers Report, for the work we have carried out in combating Scottish fraud. 

          Some of the leading practitioners in the field

          Underpinned by a market leading and award winning Intelligence and Consultancy team, including predictive analytics, profiling and telematics consultants our Scotland Fraud Team is part of a national Counter Fraud team of over 200 lawyers, led by some of the leading practitioners in the fraud market.
