Insurance Indemnity & Fraud
No business or individual is immune to deceit and dishonesty from others.
Very often police and regulatory authorities do not have the resources to deal with every instance of fraud. The Civil Fraud team at Unity Street Chambers can act quickly and decisively on your behalf, obtaining where appropriate immediate civil court protection to ensure that your personal and business assets remain safe.
Our team draw on their experience of dealing with fraud in the criminal courts, and have particular proficiency in dealing with actions brought under the Proceeds of Crime Act, in addition to those involving the protection of assets taken on behalf of HMRC.
Chambers’ Civil Fraud team has expanded in recent years. In the past few years, we have defended many alleged fraudulent road traffic accident claims on behalf of Defendant insurers, and have significant experience – and success - in seeking recovery of Defendant’s costs for findings of fundamental dishonesty in the face of QOCs protection.
As with all matters of fraud prevention, speed is of the essence. Do not hesitate to contact us and we will immediately arrange for you to speak to one of our expert team.
