This handbook is the Law Society's comprehensive and authoritative guide to one of the most challenging and rapidly changing areas of practice: litigation and dispute resolution.;Some of the country's leading practitioners explain how to run an efficient and cost-effective litigation business in the post-Woolf era. The book offers a strategic overview of the areas of practice together with practical advice on the dispute process and the way in which you can face the challenge of the litigation revolution.

The handbook is divided into three sections: the first part addresses the practicalities of how to run a litigation practice; the second part covers litigation as project management; and the final part deals with new procedures.;The book includes coverage of topical areas, such as IT, networking, ADR, ethics and client care. It makes extensive use of checklists and bullet points to illustrate in clear and well-balanced terms how to manage civil disputes in the new litigation landscape.
