Costs & Funding following the Civil Justice Reforms: Questions & Answers, 4th Edition
Description

Costs & Funding following the Civil Justice Reforms: Questions & Answers is a unique book. Produced in conjunction with Practical Law, it tackles common practitioner questions on the effects of the 2013 Jackson reforms on costs and funding. The authors answer questions on topics ranging from funding of litigation, case and costs management and proportionality to settlement offers, QOCS and summary assessment. As well as updating the existing questions and answers, the fourth edition adds a significant number of new questions and answers, and much of the commentary is revised in light of new and ongoing case law and legislation in the fast-evolving costs and funding landscape post-Jackson.
