Adam Rhys-Davies practises nationwide and is instructed by most of the country’s leading firms specialising in civil insurance fraud, and is requested by many of the UK’s insurance companies.

He has extensive experience in all areas of civil fraud, including employer’s liability, occupier’s liability and public liability, but particularly in relation to road traffic accidents. On a weekly basis, Adam deals with cases involving fabricated, staged and induced (‘slam-on’) accidents, bogus passengers and phantom witnesses, low-velocity-impact (LVI) claims and exaggerated personal-injury and damage claims. He has expertise in dealing with individual and opportunistic frauds, as well organised fraud rings. Adam also has wide experience with credit-hire claims, including very high-value cases (in excess of £250,000).

He advises at the pre-proceedings stage and throughout the course of litigated cases, and conducts conferences with lay clients and witnesses (including expert engineering and medical) to test the strength of their evidence. Adam uses his extensive forensic skills when preparing and drafting the detailed defences essential in civil-fraud cases, as well as appropriate Part 18 requests and applications for specific disclosure, including non-party disclosure. He deals with all interlocutory applications which might arise in civil fraud cases and has successfully defended many cases at trial both on the fast-track and multi-track.

Adam also presents seminars on all areas of law relating to civil insurance fraud.
