Andrea Parnham is happy to accept instructions in all aspects of civil fraud. Her ‘first six’ pupillage was under the supervision of Matthew Smith, a specialist in this area. During her time with Matthew Smith she was able to experience a wide variety of cases including staged and contrived accidents, low-velocity-impact (LVI) cases, bogus passenger claims, credit hire and exaggerated credit hire, personal injury and exaggerated PI claims, and all otherwise dishonest claims. This was over a range of settling pleadings, advising on quantum and settlement, case management hearings and fast- and multi-track trials.
Andrea has accepted instructions in the County Court, regularly appearing in interlocutory hearings and final hearings Including:
- Interlocutory injunctions
- Applications to set aside default Judgment/Summary Judgment
- Applications to strike out proceedings
- Summary Judgment applications
- Disposal hearings and MOJ Stage 3 hearings
- Case Management hearings
- Small Claims
- Fast-track hearings
She regularly advises on matters such as quantum and liability and can turn around papers quickly and efficiently to meet deadlines.
