Prevention is better than cure: how to deter fraudulent claims webinar

We were delighted to hold the next in our continuing monthly fraud webinar series in which we have been following the stages of the fraud process from detection to deterrence.

This month our speakers assessed the advantages and disadvantages of different methods of deterring fraudulent claims, including:

  • Private prosecution: the key considerations before a private prosecution is commenced together with some procedural/tactical steps to take before obtaining the summons.
  • Civil sanctions: adverse cost orders, tort of deceit, setting aside settlements and industry remedies such as IFED and IFR.
