Successfully Ring-Fence Litigation Exposure

 

Home | Solutions | Adverse Judgment Insurance

A mirror image of judgment preservation insurance, Adverse Judgment Insurance protects defendants from the risk of a substantial adverse judgment. AJI can provide coverage for both damages and attorneys’ fees and expenses. Covering all types of claims, an AJI policy can be purchased at any stage of litigation.

Risk Settlements also offers “loser pays” or After the Event (ATE) insurance that protects the non-prevailing party from having to pay the prevailing party’s attorneys’ fees and expenses, whether it is contractually required or the parties are in a jurisdiction where procedure requires the losing party to pay the other side’s costs. In addition, this policy can also be purchased by plaintiffs to cover their own attorneys’ fees and expenses.
