The demands upon family lawyers have never been greater - dients require ever more of their advisers, partners set increasingly ambitious billing targets, The Legal Services Commission imposes greater and greater obligations upon firms doing publicly funded work. The Matrimonial Lawyer: A Survival Guide distils the author's considerable experience into a highly readable practice guide. In this second edition, Imogen Clout pays particular attention to the effect of the many changes to family law practice in recent years including: handling publicly funded cases profitably; transaction criteria; costs; the national ancillary relief scheme; CPR; Family Law Act; The Child Support Act; The Matrimonial Lawyer: A Survival Guide is the only book available to advise on how the newly qualified lawyer can acquire the craft and know-how necessary to balance the competing requirements of client demand, profitable practice and personal work satisfaction. An essential book for all new divorce lawyers.
