Solution to lack of ATE Cover for PI

The scheme offers ATE cover (including cover for adverse costs and own disbursements).

The policy includes Part 36 cover and the single-stage premiums are deferred and only payable on a successful conclusion of the case.

I have worked with Guardian Legal Services for over 10 years and cannot fault their services at all. Helpful, approachable and extremely knowledgeable within the insurance sector, I simply would not turn to anyone else when seeking an appropriate product for any of the cases that I undertake in injury litigation. Paul Nicholas Gilbert has numerous years of experience in the legal sector and having worked with various other similar professionals during my career, he has the most in-depth knowledge and expertise in litigation funding, particularly in relation to high value claims that I have ever come across.

I approached Paul to try and get a quote for an ATE policy for a difficult Work Related Upper Limb Disorder claim. Not only did he get a quote (when others I had tried could not), but he helped me through the whole process, including liaising with the underwriters. When I needed cover for another claim I had no hesitation in going straight to Paul.
