We advise solicitors, funders and parties on coverage issues arising out of the use of BTE and ATE policies in relation to adverse costs in litigation and increasingly own costs and disbursements.
We also advise as to the use of ATE policies for providing security for costs and the types of such policies that the Courts are likely to accept and which are likely to be unacceptable.
We have experience in all the above and are often instructed to advise insurers and policyholders in connection with coverage disputes small and large.
