Every legal dispute involves uncertainty, whether you’re the plaintiff, defendant, or a litigation finance group. We use insurance to create certainty out of legal assets and liabilities, allowing you to achieve any number of goals:

  • Guarantee a minimum recovery on a single case or portfolio of cases, providing a basis for non-recourse financing on attractive terms,
  • Shore up credit or improve investor relations by capping a potential legal liability, or
  • Solve deal friction in an M&A transaction.

The CAC Difference. We have the largest fully dedicated team of contingent risk brokers in the country. These former litigators are the tested leaders in this space, with almost $2 billion of insurance limits in 2021 alone. Our goal is to provide you with unparalleled expertise and service.

Advisors and Advocacy. From the early stages of any placement, CAC's Contingent Risk team helps you isolate your key objectives, provides candid advice about the insurability of your legal risk and identifies the best path to securing a successful insurance solution. We get to know the intricate details of your case and become proactive advocates for you in the market, helping dictate your narrative rather than accepting the market’s view.

Financing Capabilities. CAC is a first-of-its-kind platform combining the capabilities of a specialty insurance brokerage and investment bank. Our brokers, all of whom are experienced lawyers work closely with our team of senior bankers at Dorset Peak to create combined insurance and financing solutions. Together, our team regularly helps secure substantial non-recourse financing with insurance-backed collateral.

When you work with CAC Specialty, you're getting the largest fully-dedicated team of contingent risk brokers in the country using the first-of-its-kind platform to combine the capabilities of a specialty insurance brokerage and investment bank.
