Practitioners and costs draftsmen alike are increasingly faced with a complex array of judgments over the issue of costs in civil cases. This work provides a unique and user-friendly guide through these decisions. It advises whether or not practitioners can charge for certain items, how much they can charge and definitions of terms. Its helpful commentary on how to apply the law gives expert guidance in keeping costs under the strict controls required by the Civil Procedure Rules.

  • Provides easy access to the fundamental parts of relevant judgments
  • Collects together many unreported decisions otherwise difficult to locate
  • Focuses on the issue of proportionality in fast track cost submissions, which can save practitioners money
  • In-depth analysis and expert commentary on case decisions, showing how these cases are being applied in practice
  • Incorporates the landmark ruling of Callery v Gray and important decisions of the Court of Appeal such as Halloran v Delaney.
