We are Legal Insure, Canada’s leading provider of Legal Cost Protection. Our product, Legal Insure Cost Protection™, is critical for enabling all Canadians to access their constitutional rights and an important means to help law firms provide justice for all.
For almost a decade, since 2009, Legal Insure Services Canada Inc.* has been an innovator and leader in the Canadian Legal Insurance market. We* were one of the first groups to introduce legal costs protection (After The Event) in Canada. Our legal cost protection arrangements were the first to be approved in several courts across the country and be recognized as beneficial for both law firm clients and their claimants.
Legal Insure Cost Protection™ protects plaintiffs and law firms both, from the negative effects of adverse costs awards and disbursements incurred during personal injury litigation.
Our product helps protect the financial interests of our law firm clients and the underlying plaintiffs they represent. It materially strengthens their position in their fight for justice, thus, levelling the litigation playing field between them and large insurance firms. We don’t just provide financial security for plaintiffs and their lawyers, but also serve as a reminder to defence counsel that our clients are armed with insurance and are prepared to go the extra mile in order to seek justice. Legal Insure Cost Protection™ ensures a good result for the claimant and their counsel by pushing for the maximum award, while offering a safety net of insurance in the event things do not go according to plan.
In personal injury litigation, Legal Insure’s proprietary cost protection solutions have become the standard of best practice for many leading law firms across the country and have facilitated access to justice for tens of thousands of accident victims to date. As of today, Legal Insure is proud to be serving over a 100 law firms in Canada. We have covered well over 30,000 plaintiffs till date, and paid the resulting claims.
