This thoroughly revised and updated edition of the Civil Litigation Handbook offers a comprehensive and authoritative guide to litigation and dispute resolution.

A select group of the country’s leading practitioners explain how to run an efficient, cost-effective and profitable litigation business in the post-Woolf era. The book adopts a two-part approach:

  • Part I - focuses on the strategic and practical aspects of running a litigation practice
  • Part II - concentrates on the day-to-day running of litigation cases.
