Credit Hire Aware 10


Welcome to Issue 10 of Credit Hire AWARE.  In my review of the quarter I reflect on the changes in the market and the subsequent impact this is having.

Highlights in this issue of Credit Hire AWARE include two reviews from Melanie Mooney of significant cases she has run to trial recently, looking at Willis v Phillips and Frankland v UK Insurance.  We also have a ‘day in the life’ article from Stephen Holmes on what kind of work he typically does for the team and clients.  

Don Clarke discusses the impact of the referendum on the credit hire market, and Fraser McAndry reports back on the recent credit hire fraud mock trial.

Finally we have a ‘guest’ article on a fraud case involving credit hire from Elaine Ibbotson.

As always, if you have any queries about anything featured in this issue please do not hesitate to contact us.

To Pay or Not to Pay?


A recent case handled by Keoghs considered the question of whether a credit hire company should be liable to pay the insurer’s costs when the hirer’s claim was dismissed at trial.
