Legal Protection Group Launches After The Event (ATE) Insurance in Ireland

by Sheena Court | Wed 11, Jul 2018 | News

Legal Protection Group Ireland has now launched a new After-The-Event (ATE) Insurance product specifically developed to meet the needs of the Irish legal system and help commercial lawyers de-risk litigation for their clients.

This latest development follows last month’s announcement of a joint venture with O’Driscoll O’Neil and the launch of a new range of insurance products to provide the Irish market with access to greater choice, flexibility and superior price options.

Commercial Litigation After-The-Event (ATE) Insurance has been designed to protect Plaintiff’s from the financial costs risks when pursuing non-injury legal disputes. Underwritten by Inter Hannover, with an A+ security rating, insurance cover of up to €2 million is available to support a range of cases including:


- Contract and Property Disputes

- Professional Negligence claims

- Recovery of Outstanding Debts and Insolvency claims

- International Arbitration cases

- Contentious Will and Probate

- Defamation and Privacy claims


Richard Whale, Head of ATE Sales at Legal Protection Group, said: “Following the Persona Digital and Greenclean cases there has been a general acceptance of ATE insurance as a valid form of support for access to justice for Plaintiffs. No claim ever has a 100% guarantee of success and if a Plaintiff loses or abandons their case they run the risk of incurring a significant legal bill putting many off bringing a claim to protect their legal rights.”
