Flint Bishop is delighted to announce another major appointment as part of their on-going programme of expansion.
The Defendant Insurance Department has recruited Raj Sumal, who is appointed within the Counter Fraud Team, after his move from DAC Beachcroft.
Raj qualified as a Solicitor in 2007 and over the past six years has become a specialist in the Counter Fraud area of motor insurance claims.
Raj joins the firm after more than six successful years at Birmingham based insurance firm, DAC Beachcroft, where he acted for a number of high profile household named national and international motor insurers.
His outstanding expertise and technical ability were recognised at DAC Beachcroft. Raj was heavily involved in the creation, implementation and development of a hugely successful team, specialising in all types of fraudulent claims, ranging from the more complex Staged accidents right through to Exaggerated claims. However for the past two years, Raj was the sole Account Manager for claims involving Low Speed Impact (LSI) collisions for a well-established internationally renowned insurance company. Through his hard work and dedication to this area of work, Raj was invited to carry out a secondment at one of the insurance company’s international offices.
Throughout his career, Raj has developed a formidable reputation for robustly pursuing fraudulent individuals, and has assisted in securing a number of findings of fundamental dishonesty in this developing area of law. He is recognised for identifying developing trends in the sphere of fraudulent motor claims and devising innovative and effective solutions to assist his Insurer Clients in the reduction of their financial exposure to the constantly changing landscape of all types of motor insurance fraud.
Raj’s appointment is the first stage of an on-going development of the Counter Fraud Team, and further strategic appointments are scheduled for the months ahead.
Qamer Ghafoor, Managing Partner of Commercial Services & Head of Litigation, said “On behalf of Flint Bishop, I am delighted that Raj has joined our already highly experienced and successful Defendant Insurance Team. He has an exceptional reputation and proven track record within the Counter Fraud area of motor insurance, and will significantly add to the range of specialist assistance this firm can provide to its Insurer Clients going forward.”
