Box Legal’s After The Event Insurance (ATE Insurance) business was created in 2002 by the partnership of Kingsford Stacey Blackwell (now KSB Law)
In 1999 Daniel Morris and Simon Pinner (both partners at the firm) set up the specialist Personal Injury Department for Kingsford Stacey Blackwell, described at the time by The Times newspaper as “The law office of the future”.
Using the latest technology and a new approach to client care, the department grew rapidly from 3 to 80 staff within two years.
In 2001, Simon and Daniel turned their eyes to the After The Event Insurance market. Historically problematic due to the huge amounts of administration involved and the strict rules imposed by the ATE Insurance companies, their aim was to develop a product specifically designed with the solicitor in mind, but which an ATE insurer would still back. They eventually achieved their aim, developing a product that KSB Law could use to insure its cases without any requirement for the completion of lengthy application forms, file reporting or audits.
In 2003, Daniel and Simon purchased Box Legal from KSB Law, and in doing so, were able to open up the After The Event Insurance scheme to other solicitor practices.
With further investment in 2004, Box Legal were able to greatly expand the scheme, enabling them to offer its arrangement services to all Personal Injury firms in the UK.
