Westborough, MA, United States, 2008/03/08 - L&W Investigations, a private investigations firm specializing in insurance fraud, recently announced the opening of three new franchises located in Maryland, Nevada and Orange County, California and new ownership of its Orlando, Florida office.
The newest L&W Investigations franchise owners include:
● Tobias Marano – Orlando, Florida
● Kirk Baumann – Maryland
● Stephen Hale – Orange County, California
● Dean Walker and Brad Norton– Nevada
“The costs associated with insurance fraud are about $120 billion per year according to the Coalition Against Insurance Fraud. That’s more than an epidemic, that’s a plague and it requires a more sophisticated, regional and national approach like what L&W can offer with our network of offices,” said Neal Lyons, CEO and chairman of L&W Investigations. “That’s why we’re thrilled to have people the caliber of Tobias, Kirk, Stephen, Dean and Brad as franchise owners in four critical parts of the country. Not only does it give us coverage in those markets but reinforces our entire network.”
L&W Investigations works with a variety of organizations-- insurance companies, third-party administrators, self-insured companies, law firms and municipalities—on fraudulent workers compensation, disability, liability, auto and property claims. Among L&W’s offerings are: surveillance; statements; activity/disability checks; asset/background investigations; and medical audits/clinic inspections.
“Our national approach to investigating insurance fraud cases not only appeals to clients, but to potential franchises owners. Particularly since you don’t need years in this specific business to succeed as a franchise owner,” said Lyons. “In fact, we actively pursue owners with executive and management experience who have the business savvy and people skills needed to run a business and manage a team of investigators.”
L&W typically employs three to eight investigators at each office. L&W employs seasoned investigators who specialize in investigating insurance fraud cases. All L&W investigators go through extensive training and have access to the most state-of-the-art surveillance equipment.
