Markel Insurance

ATE insurance specialist

One-off ATE insurance for commercial litigation is becoming increasingly popular with litigators who have recognised that it is an important weapon in their armoury, as it allows their client the freedom to pursue litigation with the reassurance of costs cover.

When discussing funding options with commercial clients, raising the option of ATE cover offers reassurance that their interests are being looked after and ensures compliance with the relevant codes of conduct.

ATE is a way to facilitate a method of controlling the potential costs involved in ligation risks. This can often be a significant barrier to overcome when clients are considering embarking on any kind of litigation.

We tailor all aspects of each policy specifically to the individual risk. This ensures that you have the right cover for your client’s exact needs. We can offer staged premiums, conditional premiums and retrospective terms.

Costs protection cover is available for a wide range of risks and premiums can be offered on a contingent basis.
