Legal Expenses Insurance

Legal Expenses Insurance

Before bringing a claim we would always recommend you consider whether you may have the benefit of insurance to cover your legal costs.

You or your business may have a specific policy or this could be an add on to a household or business insurance policy.  You may not have realised you have this cover!  Check this at the start of the matter as cover is not normally retrospective.

If you have cover then your insurers may direct you to a panel solicitor.  However, if the matter is complex or sensitive or you are about to bring a claim then you should be entitled to your own free choice of solicitor who will then be covered by the insurance.

 Using Clarke & Son as Your Litigation Consultant

If you plan to make a claim you may wish to have some legal advice but do not want to instruct a solicitor generally.  You just need some guidance or simply want to discuss the merits of the claim with a lawyer.

The need for help may come at any stage of the action.

This is sometimes known as an ‘unbundled’ service.

We can assist and will normally give fixed fee quotes for the work we are asked to do.
