Class Action Settlement Insurance
The Only Retroactive Policy for Businesses in Class Action Litigation
Class Action Settlement Insurance (CASI) is the only product on the market that allows companies to mitigate, cap and transfer the financial risk of settlement in existing class action litigation. Designed by Certum Group in response to businesses’ need for financial certainty in class action lawsuits and resulting settlements, CASI eliminates the unintended consequences of settlement and helps businesses exit litigation for a known, fixed cost.
Underwritten on the paper of a leading national carrier which holds financial strength ratings of A++ from AM Best™ and AA+ from Standard & Poor’s™, CASI is a revolutionary tool for businesses when they need it most— after the litigation has been filed.
Stage of Litigation
Certum Group can be retained at any stage of active class litigation, without any upfront cost or obligation, as consulting-only experts in order to review case-specific data to better understand the potential exposure and financial risk. This analysis, along with our proprietary database of historical class action settlements, allows us to quantitatively and qualitatively analyze the risk of various settlement outcomes and provide risk transfer solutions at an attractive cost. While companies can leverage Certum Group’s expertise at any stage commencing from the time a lawsuit is filed, the policy is only issued once a settlement agreement has been reached.
