ATE Insurance, Accelerated

ATE insurance is sometimes criticised for being too expensive, too difficult to obtain, and taking too long. In response to this, TheJudge has worked with “A rated” insurers to develop Accelerate.

The Judge’s Quick Quotation Service

Accelerate provides a fast-tracked process for obtaining ATE Insurance for commercial cases requiring adverse costs and own disbursements cover of up to £250,000.

Deferred Premiums for ATE Insurance

The premiums are deferred and contingent upon success and staged to provide for a reduced premium should the case settle early. This means that there is nothing to pay upfront and nothing to pay in the event of a loss.

The Insurers

Importantly, quotations for accelerated ATE Insurance will be provided by ‘A rated’ insurers. As there are multiple insurer participants in Accelerate, your client retains the benefit of a market search.

Our simple five steps

We approach a selection of insurers and, if eligible, we return within 24hrs with quotations and draft policy wordings

The applicant considers the quotations, accepts their preferred terms and provides documentation to support their case. The applicant is now bound by the acceptance of these terms
