ATE insurance, also known as litigation insurance or legal expenses insurance, offers protection against the financial risk of having to bear the legal costs of an opponent if the insured fails in his legal proceedings. Coverage options include payment of the opposing party`s fees or the opposing party`s fees and a portion of the claimant`s own costs, subject to the amount and indemnification terms of the policy. ATE may also include costs incurred prior to the start of a policy and the amount of coverage available ranges from £250,000 to £25 million or more. The ATE is usually only available to claimants, but some insurers may cover defendants.

It can be purchased before a procedure has been initiated or at any time thereafter, but buying ATE later in the procedure can result in higher premiums and increase the difficulty of finding coverage.
