Legate Group was established in 2005 to provide a range of recovery, investigation and legal services to professionals operating in the motor and asset finance, legal, insolvency and insurance markets. In 2007 the business focused its intelligence gathering skills on the motor finance sector and since that time the company’s primary service has been motor finance theft and fraud investigation.

The company is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority for the purpose of Debt Administration in connection with consumer credit agreements and is registered with the Information Commissioners’ Office.

The company is an Associate Member of the British Vehicle Rental and Leasing Association (BVRLA) and the key personnel are members of the UK or European branches of the International Association of Auto Theft Investigators (IAATI).

Legate Group is staffed and supported by a mix of industry professionals, former police and intelligence operatives, which enables the business to operate with a wide breadth of experience in a cost effective manner.

The company’s senior people possess considerable experience of working within FTSE 100 and public sector organisations with a combined motor and asset finance, insurance, intelligence, security and criminal experience in excess of 150 years.  We believe that it is difficult to find another company in our specialised sector that has this level and mix of experience.
