Within: Personal injury: defender

DWF’s ‘highly regarded, competent and professional team of solicitors’ provides insurers and insured businesses with ‘incisive analysis, full and thorough advice’. The full-service defendant personal injury practice spans catastrophic injury, large loss, occupational health, industrial disease and abuse claims, in addition to a substantial counter-fraud offering. Andrew Lothian ('a safe pair of hands') leads the insurance practice, and is noted for his ‘tremendous depth of both knowledge and experience’, which he applies ‘effectively and communicates well’. ‘A clear leader in insurance litigation’, Jill Sinclair heads the firm’s counter-fraud offering. Amongst a variety of major counter-fraud operations, the group successfully represented LV= in a case following a ‘cash for crash’ scheme involving three fictitious car crashes, leading to the conviction of nine fraudulent claimants. The senior associate and ‘great counsel’, Caroline Coyne is another key practitioner, with extensive experience in high value catastrophic injury claims.
