Fraud Intelligence Team of the Year
DWF have been awarded Fraud Intelligence Team of the Year in recognition of a combined approach to COVID-19 related issues.
Young Fraud Investigator of the Year
Joseph O'Gorman is a Fraud and Financial Crime Insight & Intel Analyst at DWF. Whilst initially joining DWF in a non-fraud role, Joseph's passion for investigating fraud, specifically layering, became evident. Through forging a close relationship with DWF's Organised Fraud Team, developing processes of fraud identification and working with our data analytics and intelligence departments, Joseph has spearheaded many successful fraud investigations and was quickly promoted into the team.
Joseph's work has made a significant difference to clients' indemnity savings. In 2019/2020, investigations into rogue rehabilitation claims with one major UK insurer achieved £8.1 million savings across pre- and post-litigation work.
Lorraine Carolan, Global Head of Fraud commented: "I am absolutely delighted that Joseph's work has received industry recognition which is so well deserved. Joseph's collaboration with our insurance clients / the global fraud team has tremendously enhanced our fraud detection capabilities and really contributed to reducing leakage in claims for our insurance clients."
Joseph O'Gorman, Fraud and Financial Crime Insight & Intel Analyst commented: "I am incredibly grateful for all of the support and opportunities I have received from everyone at DWF and our insurance clients. I feel very privileged to get to work with such great people every day, and winning the Young Fraud Investigator award has been a real highlight of a great year."
