Mike Wildy, senior business developer

Allianz Legal Protection (ALP) has partnered with Enable Law, one of the UK’s leading specialist medical negligence law firms, which supports claimants across 7 regional offices in the South of England.

ALP will provide After the Event insurance (ATE) for all of Enable Law’s clinical negligence and personal injury case types, to protect clients against adverse costs and cost risks associated with unrecovered disbursements in litigation.

In addition to ATE insurance, ALP will also provide Enable Law with access to its Paid as Incurred Disbursement model (PAID). This will allow them to make early claims for disbursement through its unique funding model which is available without interest or drawdown fees.

Mike Wildy, senior business developer commented: “We’re very pleased to be working with the experts at Enable Law, and their independent broker QLP.This new relationship is further evidence of how attractive our PAID facility is to the ATE market and legal industry. As the legal landscape continues to evolve we’re well positioned to respond and will continue to develop market leading products and services specifically designed around the needs of our clients and business partners.”

Rob Antrobus, Partner at Enable Law added: “We are delighted to have partnered with ALP who have shown their expertise and enthusiasm to meet the needs of our business and clients. Their adaptability and collaboration to date has ensured our customers are protected with a market leading ATE product”.


Notes to Editors

1)The PAID model is simply paying disbursements as incurred rather than at case conclusion, alleviating the cash flow burden that firms face due to disbursement expenditure.
