Temple Garden Chambers is the only Band 1 set in England and Wales recommended for its excellence in Motor Insurance Fraud litigation by Chambers & Partners and Legal 500 in each year this specialism has featured.

The team consists of Senior Juniors  to Juniors of less than 5 years call having fraud work as a core part of their practices.

Temple Garden Chambers has led the way in extending the ambit of law in the field of civil insurance fraud. Its members have appeared in the leading cases in every specialism in the field and have been responsible for innovating and shaping the common law over the last decade to tackle the scourge of dishonesty in insurance litigation. Such dishonesty impacts on all litigants and their lawyers making civil litigation more adversarial, costly and time consuming than it should be.

Members have extensive experience in every fraud specialism, including: Staged, contrived and induced accidents; High value personal injury cases involving exaggeration and fundamental dishonesty; Committal for contempt; Exemplary damages and the tort of deceit; The use of similar fact evidence in defeating fraud rings; Telematics; Bogus passenger claims and LVI litigation.

In addition to the large amount of motor fraud work coming into chambers, members specialise in all cases where dishonesty is alleged, including EL/PL fraud; theft, arson and dishonest first party fraud; and, fraudulent holiday sickness / food poisoning claims.

TGC also has experience in policy and technical coverage disputes concerning indemnity, the Road Traffic Act and the MIB and members have acted for specialist insurers and self-insured organisations in cases involving business protection, motor trade, fleet policies, theft, flood, contents and property damage.

Quite apart from fraud, TGC is highly acclaimed in the related fields of personal injury, costs and credit hire. The specialist fraud counsel at TGC integrate their expertise in those fields to ensure that a complete service is offered to every client.
