London Fischer LLP represents clients in connection with the detection and prevention, eradication and potential prosecution of insurance fraud. Fraudulent practices can infect any area of the insurance industry, and we have assisted clients in minimizing and eliminating the exposure they may face.
For example, we assisted a developer whose outside consultant/expeditor forged an official New York state government document that falsely represented a State cash flow commitment for healthcare reimbursables; we assisted an insurer, whose performance bond consents to surety on a transportation contract were fraudulently altered, in avoiding purported obligations to indemnify notes under a private securities offering supported by the forged consents; we assisted an insurer whose insured provided unauthorized certificates of insurance purporting to evidence coverage for numerous insurance agents and brokers for their professional liability nationwide; and our attorneys assisted reinsurers whose reinsured policies of liability insurance were fraudulently altered to increase their limits of liability by an order of magnitude and to provide insurance to risky traveling carnivals and fairs.
These problems developed in different states around the country and had further nationwide and international ramifications. Through prompt and thorough investigation and notifications, litigations where necessary, and coordination with government officials and prosecutors, we have protected the interests of our clients in circumstances such as these.
