Markel Insurance

Abbey Legal ATE is now Markel After The Event Insurance Services

On May 1, Abbey Legal ATE became Markel After The Event Insurance Services. This was a change of name only, meaning your usual exchanges with us, and the level of service we provide you with, has not changed.

What impact has this had?

The legal status of any arrangements with us, and your rights under the existing legal relationships, are not affected by the rebrand.

From 1 May, we closed our website and all of our products, services and content is now housed within this website. The access you may have had to that portal remains unchanged.

Our Abbey Legal social media account has also now closed but you can follow us @MarkelUK on Twitter and Markel UK on LinkedIn.

Our people, and their contact phone numbers, have remained the same.
Email addresses have been updated to addresses - these are all available in our documentation and within this website.
How have my previous and existing claims been affected?

The status of any previous and open claims you had with Abbey Protection Group has not been affected, and the contact who was dealing with the claim has also remained the same.

Our claims page and information can be found here:
