The team is led by director Neville Sampson, who has more than 15 years' experience in fraud defence litigation and who has worked very closely with various insurers over the years in developing robust fraud philosophies and establishing successful fraud defence strategies.
Neville and the team - joining from DAC Beachcroft - bring with them key market expertise to complement DWF's global market leading and multi-award winning counter fraud team.
Neville Sampson is joined by senior associate Amy Goodwin, associate Cath Murdock, solicitor Rohini Kapoor and senior paralegal Fareen Akhtar. The final member of the team Angela Tank, will arrive at DWF in early November. All come with significant fraud experience and will be a valuable addition to DWF's successful global team.
The team will join partners, Miles Hepworth and Mike Henman, and their fraud team in DWF's Birmingham office.
Lorraine Carolan, partner and Global Head of Fraud at DWF, said: "Neville and his team have an excellent reputation for client service and putting clients first in delivering a great service with great results. I am really looking forward to working with the team and our clients to continue to innovate our legal services in combatting fraud."
Glyn Jones, DWF's Global Head of Insurance, says: "I am delighted to welcome Neville and his team to DWF. Neville enjoys a market leading reputation and together with his team he will further strengthen our already class leading specialist fraud team operating across the UK and into Europe. This is a further sign of our commitment to the insurance and financial sector as well as to the growth of the wider DWF business."
