At a time of declining legal aid for civil litigation, many lawyers are seeking funding for work from legal expenses insurers. As a higher proportion of cases will be so funded, this book is essential reading for all civil litigators who must fully understand their contractual and professional position in acting for the insured and at the same time taking payment from an insurer. Insurers must also know their rights and obligations.;Michael Feldman is a solicitor specialising in LEI cases. His book is at once practical and accessible and should prove invaluable whatever the practitioner's involvement in an LEI matter.
