‘Fraud Investigation Team of the Year’ for its work in the casualty fraud arena. The prize recognises the phenomenal success Keoghs has achieved, resulting in an impressive record of over 100 combined trial wins/discontinuances and over half a million pounds in costs orders following findings of fundamental dishonesty. Keoghs’ motor fraud team were also on the shortlist.

Counter-fraud partner, James Heath, was delighted to be awarded with the Achievement Award, James says:

“I am of course touched and humbled to have been recognised by friends and peers in the industry with the Achievement Award at the Insurance Fraud Awards last night, but could not have achieved this recognition without the strength of Keoghs' counter-fraud teams. I'm therefore delighted that the hard work and efforts of our Casualty Fraud Team and Intelligence Team was also rewarded. Keoghs’ counter-fraud services have always been based on innovation and pushing the boundaries, in order to proactively stay ahead of the fraudsters. We always aim to ensure our clients achieve maximum savings whilst also sending out a clear message that insurance fraud will not be tolerated in any form. This award is acknowledgement of the hard work and dedication of everybody at Keoghs, and also the fantastic teams we work with at all our clients”
