The Law and Practice of Compromise is the established source of reference on all legal and practical matters connected with the settlement of disputes and actions. This new edition brings the work completely up-to-date with the implications of the Civil Procedure Rules which, with their emphasis on the early settlement of disputes, have made compromise an increasingly important area of litigation law.

Authoritative - the definitive text on settlement, a key component of the Woolf reforms Practical - includes a large section of forms and precedents helping practitioners draft offers to settle in various circumstances Relevant - separate chapters on compromise in particular areas of law address the specific needs of practitioners.

Up-to-date - includes practical commentary on the CPRs and all recent case and legislative developments New chapters - on construction disputes and personal injury claims involving children or infants and patients
