Allianz Legal Protection (ALP) has launched a new after the event (ATE) insurance partnership with leading Liverpool law firm EAD Solicitors. ALP will provide ATE insurance for all of EAD’s clinical negligence and personal injury case types.

The partnership will provide EAD clients with protection against adverse costs and cost risks associated with unrecovered disbursements.

In addition to ATE insurance, ALP will also provide EAD Solicitors with access to its Paid as Incurred Disbursement model (PAID). This will enable them to make early claims for disbursements incurred and, unlike traditional funding, is available without interest or drawdown fees.

Steve Rowley, business development manager at ALP, commented “EAD is a respected and well known firm with a strong regional presence in Merseyside. We’re delighted to have been selected as their ATE partner of choice and to support their growth ambitions.”

“The flexibility and ease of our PAID model will allow EAD to manage their disbursement expenditure as we’re not prescriptive to which disbursements can and can’t be claimed for early. This will help EAD to secure improved terms with medical experts whilst taking additional cost out of the claims process which will have a benefit for all parties involved.”

Helen Barry at EAD Solicitors said “We’re thrilled to be partnering with Allianz Legal Protection as our provider for ATE Insurance. At a time of proposed Government reforms for clinical negligence and personal injury claims, it was important for our firm to be partnering with an insurer who has the financial strength to meet its commitments and one where we can be confident they are able to deliver a solution not only now but also post any reforms.” 

“Being able to utilise ALP’s innovative disbursement costs solution as part of their ATE insurance facility ensures we’re much more closely aligned in the claims process which will ultimately benefit the customer.”

New right to paid leave for bereaved parents: A welcome move

Kimberley Manning DAS

This year, like many in recent years, has seen some key changes within the employment law field, with the government, trade unions and lobbyists remaining endlessly engaged in seeking to impose their interpretation of fair balance between employers and their respective workforces. Although consensus on that equilibrium can never really be achieved, sometimes there are pieces of legislative movement which are difficult to argue with regardless of your perspective: This is one of those. Published on 13 October 2017, the Parental Bereavement (Pay and Leave) Bill would provide for the first time a legal right to parents who are employed and have suffered the death of a child, a minimum of two weeks’ leave in which to grieve.
