We continue to demonstrate commitment and security to our solicitor partners by producing a new ATE policy that covers firms rather than individuals. Our new product gives firms the certainty that all of their clients are covered.

It operates very much like a general insurance broker’s mandatory scheme where all clients enjoy the same level of cover. The main advantage is that premiums can be extremely competitive as they are based on the fi rm’s claims experience. As a bespoke policy, we can design the cover to reflect the firm’s appetite for risk, with various excesses available. There is no requirement to issue a separate policy for each client.

Administration is equally straightforward and can be linked to the fi rms case management system. No longer a pipe dream, the first Scottish firm’s policy has already been written.
