        DWF wins prestigious accolade at the British Insurance Awards

        International legal business DWF has won the Outsourced Partner of the Year award at the British Insurance Awards 2018 after being recognised for its innovative efforts in tackling fraud.

        Date: 09/07/2018

        Covering all areas of insurance including general insurance, SMEs, claims specialists, brokers, underwriters and service providers, the British Insurance Awards are the largest in the industry.

        DWF topped their category after being praised for the business's work in responding to clients' concerns regarding the migration of organised fraud to Scotland. DWF created a multi-disciplinary outsourced team of experts who focussed on analysing the Scottish market and monitoring the Governments' legislative programme, using the business's findings to successfully lobby for regulatory changes.

        This latest award comes just a week after the business won Insurance Law Firm of the Year at the Insurance Post Claims Awards 2018 in recognition of the business's innovative route to market initiative. Earlier this year DWF also achieved a double accolade at the Insurance Times Claims Excellence Awards in the Legal Partner of the Year category and the Fraud Prevention Solution of the Year category.

        Glyn Jones, CEO of Insurance at DWF, said: "The DWF insurance team continues to go from strength to strength and their innovative fraud solutions across the Scottish market have helped both existing and new clients by leveraging data, identifying fraudsters and devising counter strategies. This award is another well-deserved recognition of the team's hard work, innovative approach and dedication to the sector."
