Legal Cost Insurance as a Strategic Device
No 97-11, CSLE Discussion Paper Series from Saarland University, CSLE - Center for the Study of Law and Economics
Legal Cost Insurance (LCI) is not only a device to reallocate risk, but also to enhance an insured's position in a settlement negotiation. The paper points out that this function of LCI is especially important in cases that have a negative expected value for potential plaintiffs. Hence LCI is of interest even for risk-neutral customers.
