Arbitration can offer litigants a simple and discrete alternative to High Court proceedings; indeed, many contracts stipulate that disputes must be referred to arbitration.
It is with that in mind we thought it time to highlight that litigation insurance is available from Temple Legal Protection to provide peace of mind for those involved in an arbitration.
- The Arbitrate policy now available includes cover for the arbitrator’s fees and venue hire charges. In all other respects it works in the same way as our standard commercial litigation insurance. Premiums will continue to be competitive, deferred and fully contingent on success.
- Temple disbursement funding is also available to meet the arbitrator’s fees, venue hire as well as experts’ fees – plus the usual disbursements incurred in an arbitration.
- As London is often the seat of arbitration for litigants from around the world, we can insure any party to an arbitration regardless of their residence or domicile – or of the law to be applied by the arbitrator.
- Please note we cannot insure parties to an arbitration where the seat of the arbitration is not in the United Kingdom, Isle of Man or Channel Islands.
To find out more please visit our Arbitrate page which provides more information about our new arbitration-friendly litigation insurance product. Alternatively, please contact Matthew Pascall on 01483 514428 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
