Cook on Costs 2012: A Guide to Legal Remuneration in Civil Contentious and Non-Contentious Business is well established as a practical, friendly guide providing clear and straightforward explanations of every aspect (except criminal costs) of the remuneration of solicitors and barristers for every level of reader.
Cook on Costs 2012 aims to explain as well as to inform, whilst being a practical guide through the complexities of all aspects of the costs of contentious and non-contentious legal business. No one who wishes to understand the principles and practice of legal costs should be without a copy.
With the contribution of five specialists in particular areas of cost, the book also summaries on Lord Justice Jackson’s Review of Civil Litigation Costs, a brief report on how costs can often be disproportionate to legal issues. Also, in another appendix, you can find comments on Lord Young’s Report: Common Sense: Common Safety.
