ATE provider goes into liquidation causing doubt over insurance policies

  • 21/05/2019

LAMP Insurance, a Gibraltar based after-the-event insurance supplier for clinical negligence and personal injury, has failed.  A message on their website confirms an application was placed to the Supreme Court of Gibraltar for the Company to be placed into liquidation on Thursday 16 May 2019.

The statement advises that insurance policies that have not expired remain in force but as LAMP “is insolvent it is unable to make any claim payments” potentially causing major issues for firms holding policies.

The company’s statement advises “Policyholders should immediately consider acquiring alternative insurance protection. Where policyholders have purchased policies from the Company through an insurance broker, solicitor or other intermediary, they should consult that person to seek advice as to what options are open to them.”
