10 February 2017


Allianz Legal Protection (ALP) has partnered with national law firm Freeths to provide After the Event (ATE) insurance.

ALP will provide insurance for the firm’s Clinical Negligence business to protect customers against the adverse cost risk associated in bringing a claim.

The ATE insurance will cover defendant costs if the claim fails to beat a Part 36 offer, as well as covering the cost of any unrecovered disbursements such as expert reports and counsel’s fees.

A key benefit of the scheme is the wide delegated authority which allows Freeths the autonomy to issue policies for all its clients.

Tony Dyas, senior business developer at Allianz Legal Protection, commented: “Freeths has a wealth of experience and a proven track record in Clinical Negligence. We are very much looking forward to working with them in what is likely to be a very challenging time with the fixed cost proposals expected in 2017.”

Jane Williams, head of clinical negligence at Freeths, commented:  “We are delighted to be working with Allianz Legal Protection, who we feel are best placed to adapt their product to meet our customers’ requirements’’.
