“Temple provided us with a disbursement funding facility in order to allow a client in administration to pursue a legitimate claim which had been declined by its insurer. In the absence of that disbursement funding facility, that claim could not have been advanced.
Temple, and its underwriter, took time to gain a deep understanding of the case and have been an integral part of the wider legal/funding team throughout its advancement.
Temple are responsive, pragmatic, and willing to think outside the box. They are not phased when unexpected issues arise, offering their own ideas for their resolution and, where necessary, providing financial support to do so.
I have no hesitation in recommending Temple’s disbursement funding facility to other law firms/clients”.

“We rely on the robust and proven nature of the ATE insurance cover from Temple and the ATE premium levels have withstood many previous challenges. Temple’s ATE cover and disbursement funding gives our litigators and our clients the confidence to pursue claims. The insurance cover and disbursement funding provided by Temple for this type of litigation has become a benchmark in enabling access to justice.”Mark Thomson - Atkins Thomson
“Temple’s litigation/ATE insurance cover is the real deal for commercial litigators; it’s second-to-none, as is the service from their Underwriters. Their disbursement funding is easy to use, removes the financial risks and gives our clients genuine peace of mind.”Razi Mireskandari - Simons Muirhead & Burton LLP
“Their support of NT1 & NT2 v Google LLC confirmed that Temple Legal Protection are not afraid to break new ground, leading the way in backing cases that test novel areas of law.”Dominic Garner - Carter-Ruck Solicitors
“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.”Duncan Lamont - Charles Russell Speechlys
“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.”Christopher Hutchings - Hamlins LLP
