DUAL Corporate Risks has secured an agreement with The Judge, a leading broker in litigation risk transfer solutions, to become one of their specialist commercial After The Event Insurance underwriters.
The specialist agency will underwrite the insurance risks while The Judge will act as a broker, and Dual says it will consider all types of cases for After The Event cover, including professional negligence, insolvency, competition, intellectual property, general commercial litigation, investment schemes and defamation.
Commenting on the partnership, DUAL’s financial lines underwriting director, Jennifer Martin, says: “We anticipate that there will be an increase in enquiries for After The Event cover as more lawyers become aware of its availability and more organisations aim to prevent exposure to the risks of litigation in these difficult economic times.”
In other DUAL news, the firm has recently announced plans to expand its National Business Unit.
The Unit was established in Manchester five years ago and has since been regarded as a notable success.
