Contentious Costs

is a book that no busy practitioner can afford to ignore. This new edition is extensively revised to take account of the Civil Procedure Rules 1998 as they affect costs law and practice in contentious cases. The new Rules and Practice Directions relating to funding arrangements,including conditional fee agreements, are analysed.

A wealth of useful advice - ranging from efficient file management to detailed assessment procedure - is provided. Public funding of civil cases under the Access to Justice Act 1999 is throughly addressed; important extracts from the Practice Direction on Costs(revised version) appear; and helpful checklists feature prominently.
