An unsuccessful plaintiff in a legal dispute may be liable to pay some or all of their opponents costs and disbursements incurred defending the case.  This is where Commercial and Civil Litigation ATE Insurance from Legal Protection Group is invaluable.

After-the-Event or ATE insurance can provide the security against having to pay the other sides’ costs and expenses in the event the plaintiff loses their case at trial or if their claim is discontinued.

Legal Protection Group can provide ATE insurance cover of between £25,000 and £2 million for both business and individual plantiffs to protect a whole range of legal disputes including:

  • Contract Dispute (personal and commercial)
  • Professional negligence
  • Property disputes
  • International arbitration
  • Recovery of outstanding debts
  • Insolvency
  • Contentious wills and probate
  • Defamation and privacy

Cover can be arranged by solicitors, litigation funders or brokers and is confirmed by means of an individual stand-alone policy. 

The policy will cover other sides’ costs if you lose your legal action or you legal action is abandoned or discontinued.

The ATE insurance premium payable is dependent upon the level of cover required however, normally premiums are deferred until the conclusion of the case and only payable in the event a claim is successful.  This means your client has nothing to pay unless they win their case and then the premium is paid out of the damages they have received.
