Gemma enjoys receiving frequent instructions from defendant and in particular, insurer parties in a range of fraud matters, including LVI, staged accident and phantom passenger and exaggerated claims. She is ‘panel counsel’ for major UK insurers and is trusted with complex disputes, usually on the multi track. She boasts an impressive record in securing findings of fundamental dishonesty and is well versed in applications under s58 CJCA. Her experience of both interlocutory and final hearings enables her to provide practical advice, both on paper and in conference, on evidence, tactical approaches and investigation work. Gemma also regularly gives seminars and lectures on insurance and fraud issues to both solicitors and insurers.
Gemma graduated from Oxford University with a degree in Philosophy, Politics and Economics before qualifying for the Bar in 2006 and undertaking pupillage in London.
