DWF recognised for insurance innovation

Leading legal business DWF has been shortlisted at The Insurance Fraud Awards 2016 for Fraud Investigation Team of the Year, recognising the firm’s market-leading counter fraud team who were involved in tackling a significant, complex organised fraud ring that saw the team take an industry-first, collaborative approach, conjoining the investigation and working with insurers to combat fraudulent activity.

DWF achieved ground-breaking results in the Court and delivered over £1million in savings for insurers, leveraging innovative predictive analytics systems and market-leading profiling intelligence. 

DWF’s national Head of Counter Fraud Lorraine Carolan says: “We’re delighted to be recognised for our work in delivering a first of its kind legal collaboration, presenting to the industry a new way of approaching fraud investigations, which is leading to ground-breaking decisions that have had a crucial impact on how organised fraud is investigated.”

DWF circa 900-strong insurance team has strengthened its counter fraud capability to the benefit of its national and international insurer clients, including Aviva, QBE and RSA, with the recent launch of a new counter fraud team in Scotland following the appointment of Head of Counter Fraud in Scotland Jill Sinclair.

This year’s winners will be announced on 6th October.
