Our dispute resolution insurance solutions include:
- After The Event Legal Expenses Insurance (ATE): our ATE protection covers all or part of the risk of having to satisfy an adverse costs order. With premiums delivered in pre-paid stages, fully deferred and contingent upon winning the case - or a combination of the two - we have solutions to meet every case budget.
- Security for costs: overcoming a security for costs order can be a challenge for claimants who lack financial resources or would prefer to avoid cash collateralisation in foreign jurisdictions. Our solutions help satisfy courts - and by extension defendants - on this issue.
- Cross Undertakings: a 7-year non-cancellable policy covers damages and costs awarded against the claimant if it later transpires that the order was wrongly granted in the first instance.
- Human Risk Insurance: cases can often hinge on the appearance of key individuals. Covering the risk of death or disability, kidnap or illness, we’ll cover the extra costs of delay; the lost costs of abandonment or the law firms WIP if the key individual is unable to continue as part of the case.
- Arbitration Default Insurance: a political risk solution that takes away the unpredictability associated with enforcing an arbitration award against a sovereign state. The policy responds as soon as the state fails to honour the award.
