No two cases are the same. While your case could go any way and take any path, the one constant is the White Book. Whether you settle, make it to court, go to appeal or further, make sure you do things right. Standard across the legal market, more judges and lawyers use it than anything else. Why? Not only for the latest version of the rules, but also for the commentary provided by those best placed to advise you on what to do, so you can advise your client on what to do.

Your free copy of Costs & Funding following the Civil Justice Reforms: Questions & Answers, 2nd Edition.

Costs & Funding following the Civil Justice Reforms: Questions & Answers is a unique book. Produced in conjunction with Practical Law™, this short and practical book tackles common practitioner questions on the effects of the 2013 Jackson reforms on costs and funding. It sets out to answer questions posed on topics ranging from funding of litigation, case and costs management and proportionality to settlement offers, QOCS and summary assessment.
