Westborough, MA, United States, 2008/03/21 - With more than 55 territories across the U.S. and Canada, L&W Investigations deploys a network of investigators to solve insurance fraud cases for its clients.
For two days, the brain trust behind that network, L&W franchise owners, will convene in Boston for L&W Investigations annual national convention on April 7 and 8
Taking place at the Boston Copley Marriott, the two-day conference will feature presentations by nationally recognized experts from the insurance, legal, and IT industries—key partners in conducting any insurance fraud investigation. Featured presenters include:
● Joseph Hayre & Traci Talamini, Trustmark Insurance
● John Sargent, MetLife
● Joe Zuromsky and Dan Donovan, Liberty Mutual
● Jill Henriques, Esurance
● Jodi Conners, Esq., Smith & Brink
● Kurt Buck, Digital Aerospace Solutions
“The Coalition Against Insurance Fraud estimates the costs associated with insurance fraud to be $120 billion annually. That’s not an epidemic, that’s a plague,” said Neal Lyons, CEO and chairman of L&W Investigations, Inc. “So we’ve loaded up our conference agenda with speakers who can help our franchise owners in making a dent in that figure by working more efficiently with clients, conducting tighter investigations and more effectively running their respective territories.”
L&W Investigations works exclusively on fraudulent workers compensation, disability, liability, auto and property claims for organizations ranging from insurance companies to third-party administrators, self-insured companies to law firms and municipalities. And while traditional investigations firms look to former law enforcement types, L&W actively pursues franchise candidates with executive and management experience who have the business savvy and people skills needed to run a business and manage a team of investigators.
“That’s what makes our national convention such an invaluable experience for all our franchise owners, but specifically those fairly new to insurance fraud. It gives them a chance to further educate themselves on the industry and learn from experts on the client-side and from our more seasoned franchise owners,” said Lyons. “Beyond that, it’s just a great way to further solidify the network of investigations offices by having franchise owners meet in a great city like Boston.”
In its fifth year of operation and presently with 55 territories nationwide, L&W typically employs three to eight investigators at each office. L&W investigators go through extensive training and have access to the most state-of-the-art surveillance equipment. L&W’s service offerings include: surveillance; statements; activity/disability checks; asset/background investigations; and medical audits/clinic inspections.
