Position

Since 2007, Simon Clegg has become an established civil-fraud practitioner with experience of cases involving contrived road-traffic collisions, low-velocity-impact (LVI) and fabricated employer’s liability claims.

He acts on behalf of defendant insurers in cases where fraud is positively alleged as well as in suspicious cases where a robust defence is required. His involvement in such cases reaches from pre-issue advice to drafting pleadings, interim applications and appearance at trial.

He regularly undertakes conferences in order to proof insured drivers, engineers and witnesses.

Simon Clegg is a busy civil practitioner, receiving instructions from both claimant and defendant firms. His personal injury (PI) experience includes fast-track and multi-track work, and he has come to specialise in clinical negligence, credit hire and both jury and non-jury inquests. Simon regularly provides advice to child claimants in respect of damages. 

Simon also undertakes inquest work.

Simon Clegg undertakes a variety of criminal cases, building a substantial practice specialising in fraud and confiscation proceedings.

He is a Grade-3 prosecutor and is regularly instructed by a number of prosecuting authorities, such as the CPS (including the Department of Rural, Health and Welfare), HMRC, Central Fraud Group North, the Health & Safety Executive, the Department for Business, Innovation & Skills and the Environment Agency.

Simon is also experienced in EPE (electronic presentation of evidence).
