The Tenet team

We are a group of individuals all from national law firm backgrounds brought together by our aims to be accessible and place our work at the heart of what we do.

Arun Chauhan

Arun is the reason Tenet is here. He founded Tenet early in 2016, himself having previously held the role of partner heading up a top 20 national law firm's commercial fraud team.  

Arun is a solicitor specialising in financial crime compliance, investigations and litigation arising from fraud. Arun further qualified as a compliance professional through the International Compliance Association.

Arun’s aim when he established Tenet was to provide national law firm expertise on dealing with fraud and financial crime uses in a more accessible format to clients and this has resulted in Tenet acting for a range of clients from multi-billion pound turnover corporations to individuals both domestically and internationally. Arun typically represents claimants who have suffered loss to dishonest actions.

When advising companies or not-for profit organisations, Arun principally advises Board members, in-house legal, finance and compliance teams.

Immersed in the counter fraud world, Arun is a solicitor and certified compliance professional specialising in financial crime compliance. He was the first private practice solicitor to obtain the post-graduate diploma qualification in financial crime compliance with the International Compliance Association (their leading qualification on the subject).

Arun regularly speaks on counter-fraud, financial crime compliance and fraud matters having featured on BBC television from 2016 onwards and quoted in the national press (the Telegraph). Arun often presents on webinars and at conferences, including for the International Compliance Association, RICS, various accounting bodies and the National Housing Federation. He is also a Trustee Director for the Fraud Advisory Panel, a board member of Today Advisory and is a member of the Commercial Fraud Lawyers Association.


Liane Atcheson

Liane is a solicitor who for almost a decade specialised in advising large insurance companies on defending and resisting fraudulent claims at a large national law firm.

She developed a niche for insurance fraud, investigating and litigating large scale fraudulent schemes against major insurance companies, leading a team of fraud ring specialists.

Liane started working with Tenet in 2016 advising our clients on a range of fraud based litigation and investigation cases, typically focused on issues of fraud by agents and employees. Liane acts for a range of clients at Tenet having advised a multi-billion dollar turnover manufacturer in the United States through to individuals having been misled on investments.


Esther Phillips

Esther trained at a national commercial firm in property, corporate, commercial and litigation giving her versatility and breadth of knowledge.

Esther practices all aspects of commercial litigation with her cases particularly focused on fraud relating company issues (such as breach of fiduciary duties), misrepresentation cases and professional negligence.

Esther provides advice to a range of our clients. She has advised on complex professional negligence claims involving allegations of conflict of interest and failure to provide correct advice on the pursuit of a freezing injunction application for a litigation funder. She has advised a number of our individual and SME clients in cases involving loss ranging from £10,000 to in excess of £1m.


Erica Simpson

Erica joined Tenet in March 2018 having previously worked in the Dispute Resolution team at a global law firm and a large national commercial law firm in Birmingham where she was a Senior Associate.

Erica has a vast amount of experience in advising clients on a range of general commercial litigation matters with a particular interest in advising on fraud related company issues arising out of (amongst other things) cybercrime, professional negligence, misrepresentation, breach of warranty, shareholder and employment related company disputes.

Erica acts for a range of clients from high net worth individuals and SMEs through to large PLCs. She has vast experience in arbitration, mediation and litigation and is noted by the legal directories as being one to watch whilst being praised by clients for her “commercial mind” and for being a litigator who is “calm under pressure”.

Practice manager

Jemma Jackson

Jemma is Tenet’s Practice Manager, the glue that holds us together. She is the person who keeps us all in check and one of the main reasons we are able to be a “paper-less” office.

Jemma manages the majority of administrative, in-house accounting and compliance tasks it takes to run a law firm to allow our team to focus on delivery of work for clients.

Jemma previously worked at two national commercial law firms before taking time out to have a family and has now returned to the profession being a central part of the success of developing Tenet thus far.


James Modley

James joined Tenet in September having previously worked in the Dispute Management team at a large national commercial law firm in Birmingham where he was an Associate.

James has experience of advising SME’s, high net worth individuals and FTSE 100 companies on a range of general commercial litigation matters. This incorporates advising on fraud related issues arising out of misrepresentation, breach of fiduciary duties, professional negligence and cybercrime. James specialises in advising high net worth individuals, having previously advised sports stars and celebrities alike in relation to reputational management issues, particularly concerning the dishonest/fraudulent use of information by MGN Limited relating to voicemail interception “phone hacking”. He was instrumental in recovering significant damages for his clients.
