“Air Canada has its share of significant litigation matters that entail a high expenditure on fees and disbursements. While we have the ability to self-fund, in some circumstances we might prefer to hedge the economic risk of a negative outcome. In these situations, we find litigation insurance to be a very cost-effective way of hedging our risk.”
“TheJudge were able to secure a novel insurance hedge for our client’s exposure… the team worked hard to ensure the package met the demands and needs of the client by providing a necessary cost protection, with no upfront costs and crucially without the need for the client to give up a significant percentage style contingency fee.”
