Many thanks for your help and your suggested innovative approach. That is exactly what we need!
James Cahan - Thomson Snell & Passmore - March 2018
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 2 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.

I would like to take the opportunity on behalf of myself and my client to thank you/Temple for supporting this case. The level of award is likely to make a real difference to [the client’s] quality of life given the extent of her ongoing difficulties referable to her spinal cord injury.
Ian Carrier - Royds Withy King - January 2018
In an increasingly competitive market Temple ‘tick all our boxes’ in terms of their underwriting, which is always accessible sensible and supportive, their competitive premiums and their easy to use disbursement funding.

Christian Charlesworth - Womble Bond Dickinson (UK) LLP - December 2017
Temple’s disbursement funding facility has enabled our clients to get proper access to justice. The online facility is easy to use and without this disbursement funding some of our clients would have found it simply impossible to bring their claim at all.
Alex Cochrane and Steven Heffer - Collyer Bristow - November 2017

Temple are a great company to deal with. They are honest and do what they say on the tin which is important in business. They are also very nice people to deal with.
Damian Horan - Partner, Moore Blatch Resolve LLP
In an era when the increasing prevalence of a ‘one size fits all’ approach results in a ‘can’t do’ response, it’s so refreshing to come across an organisation like Temple who regard as a matter of professional pride the challenge of devising an inventive and cost-effective solution to an insurance problem.
Richard Parr - Partner, Blacks Solicitors
Temple’s service levels are excellent and all the staff are very helpful and pleasant to deal with. The reporting requirements are reasonable without being unnecessarily onerous. On the rare occasions when we do need to call on a policy Temple are fair and pay out which gives us the peace of mind that our clients are well protected.

The reputation of Insurers can often be a tough and inflexible one. I can however state that the approach of the team is a joy to behold. Their speed of response is superb and their flexible approach to the individuality of cases is both very mature and a breath of fresh air.
Jonathan Sachs - Partner, Irwin Mitchell Solicitors
We have successfully worked with Temple for a number of years. Their response times, practical approach and excellent service levels have differentiated them from other insurers with whom we have dealt in the past. We enjoy working with them.
