Anthony Carrington's Expertise

 

Anthony Carrington

Anthony Carrington

Partner - Head of Organised Fraud

Birmingham

Anthony specialises in advising clients on counter fraud strategies and bespoke fraud strategies on large scale organised fraud for insurers.

He has over 10 years’ experience advising clients across a range of sectors and leads a team of 10 lawyers who advise over 12 insurers in relation to their strategies to counter organised fraud. His key clients include Aviva, ERS and AXA.

Anthony’s role as Head of Organised Fraud means that he regulars advises clients in relation to similar fact evidence defences to fraud rings, fundamental dishonesty, sanctions including committal as well as taking a lead in relation to strategy for investigations including automatic number plate recognition evidence.

Relevant experience includes advising:

  • On Operation Tiny, an organised fraud ring of contrived accidents and application fraud. The operation consisted of over 50 claims for injury and other losses including credit hire. All of the claims matching the Operation’s modus operandi were successfully defended. The reserves of the claims repudiated totalled over £1.5 million. The Operation was referred to City of London’s Insurance Fraud Enforcement Department and the key nominal was sentenced to 3 years and 8 months in prison.
  • As Supervising Partner in the case of Aviva Insurance Ltd v Ahmed. The claimant pursued a personal injury claim following a deliberately induced accident. The civil claim was successfully defended and found to have been fundamentally dishonest. Following the successful defence of the civil claim, Anthony provided advice in relation to an application for committal and the former claimant received an eight month custodial sentence.
  • Regularly advising clients on market changes in counter fraud, using intelligence and Know Your Opponent to tackle specific issues targeting his clients. Anthony is also involved with our data analytics services used to identify clients organised fraud exposure via MOJ Portal and policy data.

In addition, Anthony has liaised with the press on a number of cases on behalf of clients and has himself appeared on the BBC’s Claimed and Shamed.
