Markel Insurance

After the Event (ATE) Insurance

Markel is one of the UK’s leading after the event (ATE) insurers who, for the past 20 years, have provided solicitors and their clients with top quality, ‘A’ rated insurance cover in all litigation matters. We put creativity, innovation and customer service at the heart of what we do.


You can expect first-rate insurance cover, which provides the insured with protection from the exposure to the opponent’s costs and disbursements should the litigation be unsuccessful. We provide a flexible approach with a friendly member relations team who are always on hand to help, along with a claims team who settle eligible claims as swiftly as possible.


Our extensive range of award-winning, delegated authority products and services are specifically designed to reduce the financial burden on law firms in the post LASPO landscape. They include scheme-based solutions in:

  • Personal injury
  • Clinical negligence
  • Catastrophic injury

Our portfolio of risk extends from high volume ATE markets to bespoke policies for all types of litigation.  All cases are assessed by legally qualified risk assessors, allowing us to understand each individually assessed case on its own merits. 

We tailor all aspects of each policy specifically to the individual risk, ensuring that you have exactly the right cover for your client’s needs.  Usually, the premium is paid when the case has been successfully included.  Premiums can also be staged, so the earlier the client reaches a settlement the lower the premium.
