Our Approach

Through helping our clients to re-engineer their internal processes, we ensure that each element of the process is efficient and supports each other, devising tailored strategies around fraud identification, rehabilitation and the ultimate elimination of leakage through improved process and procedures. Our service also encompasses third party cost negotiation involving the scrutiny and reduction of excessive fees.

Additionally, we aim to assist in the education of your wider business through road shows and seminars that help clarify what can have a positive impact and the role that all parts of the business can play in ensuring that legitimate claims are handled efficiently and effectively.

Where appropriate we can assist in the creation of innovative settlement solutions for public liability and product claims such as the use of vouchers or replacement products which can contribute to an overall reduction in the cost of indemnifying claimants.

We will work with you to devise a claims strategy that will focus upon your own areas of priority. This can include agreeing specific handling protocols for high frequency incidents and identifying localised trends at a divisional or site level.

We are also able to offer post litigation services, to ensure that there is consistency in the process and a reduction the duplication of work.
