Litigation Funding Handbook is a comprehensive guide to the extensive changes to costs and funding introduced by the Jackson reforms in April 2013. This radical overhaul of the litigation funding regime has impacted all litigators.

The handbook examines the various types of funding agreements available and looks at the issues that practitioners need to consider. This review includes:

  • Proportionality
  • Costs management
  • CFAs as well as ATE an BTE insurance
  • The introduction of damages-based agreements
  • Third party funding
  • The introduction of 'qualified one way costs shifting' in bodily injury cases
  • Changes in general damages and Part 36
Written by leading experts, Litigation Funding Handbook takes an in-depth and authoritative look at some of the most fundamental and far-reaching changes to funding and costs management. This practical and user friendly guide also includes useful litigation funding tables and model DBAs for both solicitors and barristers. Essential reading for all involved in civil litigation in the new post-Jackson world.
