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.
