Legal expenses insurance



Relatively obscure in the United States, this form of insurance is well established in the major loser-pays jurisdictions, where it typically (among other functions) helps protect individuals against the risk of owing a fee as a losing plaintiff at trial. That it (like other forms of insurance) might not be immune to gamesmanship and angle-playing, however, is suggested in this post from the popular U.K. fictional law blog, Baby Barista.
