“One case at a time and it didn’t cost you a dime”: flying Solo with Temple Legal Protection

By Andy Lyalle, Senior Business Development Manager

(Estimated reading time: 2 minutes 30 seconds)

I have a habit that is unfortunate for anyone who is around me at the time.  A song can jump into my head, and I will proceed to sing it or repeat a bassline, drum beat etc.  I have previously included Jessie J and the Spice Girls in articles that have provoked such an outburst and today’s title is from a Johnny Cash classic.

Rather than “one piece at a time” by The Man in Black I am referring to Temple Legal Protection and our “Solo” offering.  We have designed our suite of ATE insurance and disbursement funding options so that we can work together to review what you require for your firm and clients.

Our “Espresso” offering may be appropriate for a segment of cases that have a uniformity about them and therefore a fully delegated scheme.  It may be more appropriate to design a tailored, bespoke scheme via our “Concierge” product.  You may end up with an “Espresso” and a “Concierge” scheme for different parts of your non-injury litigation business.

I meet with many solicitors and there are a few common questions asked for clarity such as “Do we need counsel’s opinion when sending you a case?”  “Does the case need to be funded via a CFA? “Are there minimum volumes?”  The answer to all three is no and we are very happy to receive individual enquiries.  This is the “Solo” option.

I have known underwriters who might wake up in the middle of the night shouting ”adverse selection” but you will be aware that if the case has been rejected elsewhere it may be rejected by Temple.  However, it may not as we have over twenty years’ experience of dealing with practically all areas of law.  Remember, I am talking about non-injury litigation here in relation to “Solo” cases.

If you are concerned about completing a proposal form because it may not be within our appetite, the merits of the case or prospects of success are borderline or it all comes down to the premium, then please send a synopsis to either me or one of my colleagues and we will give an opinion on all of the above, including an indicative, non-binding premium that you can discuss with your client.

You can then return to your client and discuss proportionality, hedging and our disbursement funding facility.  It all adds value to the client.  If the client wishes to proceed, we will then require the proposal form to be completed and the case will be allocated to one of our underwriters.

It really is as simple as that.  No fees and premiums that are deferred and contingent upon success.  Once we build up a relationship you may wish to explore a “Concierge” or “Espresso” option for your cases and clients, or you may wish to continue “flying Solo” “one case at a time” – and that works just as well for us.

If you would like to discuss the above or arrange a meeting in person or virtually, please contact me on 07936 903767 or .
