Litigation Insurance and Disbursement Funding for Northern Ireland
Temple Legal Protection is one of the UK’s leading providers of litigation insurance, also known as After-The-Event or ATE insurance. Following thorough research and data gathering in the Northern Irish litigation market, we have developed a fresh and competitive range of products tailored to the jurisdiction and an underwriting process that understands and responds to the needs of local practitioners.
Litigation insurance from Temple provides the security that parties need when engaged in a legal dispute. In the event of an unsuccessful claim, our insurance covers own disbursements, own counsel fees and adverse costs. Clients who have an ATE insurance policy with us can automatically benefit from the use of our disbursement funding, which gives them the financial backing to pursue their claim.
It can be used for a wide variety of legal disputes, including clinical/medical negligence, personal injury, professional negligence, insolvency, property disputes, contentious trusts & probate, privacy & defamation and more.

“I have been working with Temple Legal Protection for almost a year now and found them to be extremely professional and easy to work with. The turnaround times for applications are quick, the premiums reasonable, and the disbursement funding loan an extremely beneficial option to assist clients with the significant cost of funding clinical negligence litigation.
We have previously used ATE in both civil and clinical negligence litigation. The reason I wanted to work with Temple was solely based on the disbursement funding loan option which our previous ATE provider did not offer.
I feel that funding issues are a main concern for all solicitors and clients in clinical negligence work.
In addition, ATE cover – but more importantly the disbursement funding loan – is certainly something that can help garner more potential client interest.
For solicitors new to ATE insurance my advice would be to focus on the disbursement funding loan side of things. ATE has been available in N Ireland for a long time now, but never with the benefit of a loan all ‘under the same roof’, to fund the case.”
