Many brokers and law firms have chosen to partner with DAS.
Here you can find out why our partners choose us, and how you can join them.
This ‘after the event’ (ATE) insurance product is for firms requiring a high number of policies, but needing lower levels of cover.
If you need ATE insurance for claims with a level of indemnity up to £250k, Civil Direct is a quick and effective way to protect your clients from the financial risk of litigation.
As a partner solicitor, you enter into a single agreement with DAS, enabling you to immediately place cases on cover and run them on a delegated basis, provided they meet certain criteria.
Cover can be provided for a civil or commercial claims including:
It covers the other sides’ costs and disbursements, and your client’s own disbursements if the case is lost or discontinued. It also covers full ‘Part 36’ cover, and counsel’s fees provided they are not acting under a conditional fee agreement.
Standard cover for claims insured through civil direct is up to £250k.
If you require cover with a limit of indemnity of more than £250k then our civil litigation product may be more suitable.
Please get in touch with us to find out more about the criteria which would make your client’s claim suitable to insure using Civil Direct.
This is very much claim-dependant but Civil Direct gives you access to our most favourable premiums, which are deferred, self-insured, and based on a percentage of damages recovered.
Like all of our ATE products, Civil Direct is insured and underwritten by DAS and we hold an ‘A’ rating with Standard and Poor’s.
