We make litigation possible for those who otherwise would not bring a claim due to the financial risk involved. This not only increases access to justice for clients but saves time, money and mistakes for people involved in the litigation process.

The litigation funding and insurance markets exist to help clients who either lack the funds to pursue a legal case or who have the funds but would like to reduce or eliminate the risk. We work closely with you and your legal team to put in place insurance and/or funding arrangements to limit as much as possible your financial exposure in bringing your legal claim.

We have some of the best knowledge, experience and relationships with litigation funders and insurers in Australia, meaning clients get the most suitable product for them at the best price.

We arrange litigation insurance for anything from small business disputes to complex commercial cases and provide cover ranging from $100,000 to multi-million dollars.

Products we offer

ATE insurance

ATE insurance (After the event insurance) is an insurance policy taken out after a legal dispute has arisen and provides cover against an opponents costs (can be extended to include disbursement costs*), meaning if unsuccessful, you won't pay your opponents costs.

*disbursement meaning = costs associated with a legal matter, usually organised by the legal practitioner, with the exception of fees for solicitors. Examples of disbursement costs may include: medical records, police reports, expert reports, counsel fees, court fees, witness expenses. A definition by the Federal Court of Australia can be found here.

The premium may be payable either upfront, contingent on the success of your legal dispute or a combination of the two.

Where your policy contains a fully contingent premium, if you are unsuccessful in your legal dispute, the premium will not be payable i.e. you will pay nothing for your cover.

ATE insurance can also be used as "security for costs" instead of making a cash payment into court or using a bank guarantee.
