ATE Products

We have provided market-leading ATE insurance for over 20 years. Our products can cover your clients for the full range of claim types including clinical negligence, personal injury, and civil/commercial litigation.

Why become a partner? Who we are

Clinical Negligence

We can support any type of clinical and dental negligence claim and even offer top-up cover to existing DAS ATE or BTE policies.

Personal Injury

We can manage any type of personal injury claim, and cover both motor and non-motor claims. We offer delegated authority schemes to firms that meet our criteria for performance and case volumes and even provide a specialist offering for more niche areas of law for example abuse, brain injury and animal acts.

Civil / Commercial Litigation

Civil / Commercial litigation claims are individually assessed for ‘after the event’ (ATE) insurance. We realise that with these cases it’s often preferable to take a case-by-case approach and that you often require bespoke cover for your clients.
