The department, which has seen exponential growth in the last twelve months, is now the largest Defendant Personal Injury team in the East Midlands. They have devised and implemented bespoke processes and strategies tailored to the needs of their clients, which has allowed the team to efficiently deal with the work they undertake, which have received excellent praise amongst the insurance industry.

The department have a formidable reputation for robustly pursuing insurance claims on behalf of insurers and also offer a counter Fraud service under the guise of ex-DAC Beachcroft expert, Raj Sumal. Raj has been instrumental in developing the department through expanding their Fraud offering and developing and enhancing other key areas, such as Credit Hire and Large Loss claims.

Raj Sumal comments; “With the recent additions to the department it now shows that Flint Bishop is attracting specialist staff from all areas of Defendant PI, which puts us firmly on the map. We are pleased to now be in a strong position to cover a wide variety of insurance law services including Motor, Casualty, Catastrophic Injury/Large Loss Claims, Credit Hire, Fraud, Recoveries and Costs.”

The department is led by Legal 500 ‘Elite’ lawyer, Qamer Ghafoor. Qamer is Managing Partner of Commercial Services and Head of Litigation. He has been personally shortlisted in the Managing Partner Forum awards, against competition from multi-billion pound turnover firms across the world.

Qamer comments; “Our most recent lateral hires are a testament to our increased presence and growth across the UK. We are certainly making noise in the market place with our innovative ways of working and the manner in which we work with our clients. I am very much looking forward to the year ahead and recuiting further experts to keep up with our expansion plans into 2017.”
