“ATE was vital to the firm and our clients as it was the only way we could bring these hacking claims without catastrophic risk. Although each claim was valuable (as history has shown) the cost of failure after a complex trial would have wiped them out and having insurance support, both initially and especially when topped up as we faced 6 weeks of trial; meant we could fight on an equal basis with a very rich defendant and achieve an appropriate negotiated settlement. Without ATE our firm would have had a duty to cut the case short and advise our clients to accept any half decent low offer and not recover what they were entitled to based on the courts guidelines. The two clients were very different but insurance meant a level playing field.”

“The cover provided by Temple has undoubtedly enabled large numbers of claimants to bring successful phone hacking claims against two of the most powerful newspaper groups, News Group and Mirror Group. Jim Moir (also known as Vic Reeves) is one such claimant. The risk he faced of potentially being ordered to pay some of the defendant’s costs would undoubtedly have deterred him from pursuing his case through the court. The costs incurred by both sides in this litigation can be substantial and there are very few claimants who would want to embark on a claim in the absence of cover. Jim has had a great result with which he is delighted. He will now receive substantial damages for the years of hacking and unpleasant articles which resulted from the unlawful interception of his voice messages and other intrusions into his private life by the newspapers.”
