Temple Legal Protection is one of the country’s leading underwriters of legal expenses insurance.

We provide a wide range of competitive ATE (After the Event) and BTE (Before the Event) insurance solutions to law firms, brokers and insurers in order to help people reduce their financial risks in litigation.

After the Event Insurance

ATE Insurance is taken out once legal proceedings are contemplated. The insurance will indemnify the insured’s own disbursements and his opponent’s costs and disbursements in the event that the legal action is ultimately discontinued or lost at trial.

Temple is the natural first choice among solicitors for both After the Event (ATE) and employment practices insurance in the UK. This is why many of the country’s best-known law firms insure their clients with Temple.

Before the Event Insurance

Like traditional insurance, legal expenses insurance can be taken out ‘before the event’ and is designed to protect you against the costs associated with potential litigation. For commercial organisations, such protection can be key in managing financial risks, particularly with regard to employment, tax and contract disputes.

We offer a range of bespoke products and schemes covering fees for solicitors, counsel and expert witnesses, own disbursements and court fees along with cover for opponent’s legal costs. Products are available through brokers, insurance companies and commercial lawyers.
