AmTrust Law-1200Because litigation is rarely Black and White

 If you’re a solicitor looking for a legal expenses insurance partner, there are several options on the market – few with the levels of free-thinking flexibility offered by AmTrust Law.

Our underwriters specialise in tailor-made commercial legal expenses policies that give your clients the cover they need. With an ‘A’ (Excellent) credit rating from A.M.Best, worldwide cover capability and a strong balance sheet, we also have the financial clout needed to underwrite higher indemnity values for large commercial clients.

What we do

AmTrust Law is a leading provider of LEI and related products which put the Insured and their business needs at the centre of what we do.

LEI facilitates access to legal advice and covers the costs of pursuing or defending certain classes of legal action. LEI can be provided on either:

  • Before the Event (BTE) basis, where cover is taken out against the risk of incurring legal expenses in respect of an unforeseen incident or dispute; or
  • After the Event (ATE) basis, to cover the potential liability for the litigation costs for a dispute already in progress if it is discontinued or lost

What sets us apart

At AmTrust Law, we provide a bespoke rather than a commoditised LEI service. We have a strong underwriting team with a broad range of experience and skill sets, which enables us to develop solutions suited to an Insured’s needs rather than simply trying to shoehorn them into existing products. We are innovative in our approach and always happy to consider new concepts.

Our philosophy is underpinned by a passion for excellence and a commitment to communicate in a timely and no-nonsense manner.

Despite a popular perception of the legal world being staid and resistant to change, it can be a dynamic environment in many respects and particularly in the area of costs. We ensure that we keep up to date with all the latest developments and are active members of RIAD, the international association of legal protection insurers.

Following the changes to recoverability of ATE insurance premiums, implemented in 2013, there have been a myriad of issues and implications for clients, solicitors and insurance brokers. AmTrust Law has developed a number of innovative solutions to support your business and client needs.
