BTE (Before the Event) Legal Expenses Insurance
You may have legal expenses cover under your house, contents, motor or travel insurance policies. Sometimes bank and building society accounts or credit cards carry cover.
We advise that you check the terms of these accounts and policies carefully. We will be happy to assist in reviewing these policies for you. If you have the benefit of this cover, your legal expense insurers will meet your legal costs, subject to our obtaining their approval for us to act on your behalf. These policies may be restricted to certain types of legal work and may have a ceiling on available cover.
If your case falls within the policy, this may be the best and cheapest way to proceed.
