Cook on Costs remains the leading specialist commentary dealing with all costs developments in recent years. This new edition comprehensively assesses and advises on the results of those changes, incorporating commentary on how the courts are implementing the new costs and costs-related provisions

Simon Middleton and Jason Rowley continue to keep Michael Cook's aim to write about costs in an 'interesting, coherent and digestible' way to the fore, meaning that his influence lives on, not simply with the retention of the title but in the ethos of the book.

Cook on Costs 2016 offers clear and straightforward explanations of every aspect (except criminal costs) of the remuneration of solicitors and barristers.

Using a dual approach, the text both informs and guides you through all aspects of the costs of contentious and non-contentious legal business.
