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. The new edition adds a significant number of new questions and answers; updates the existing questions and answers and revised commentary in light of new and ongoing case law and legislation in the fast-evolving costs and funding landscape post-Jackson.

Each chapter starts with introductory commentary covering relevant legislation, case law and Lord Justice Jackson’s Review of Civil Litigation Costs: Final Report followed by the questions and answers, sub-divided under topics.

New coverage for the new edition includes cases such as West v Stockport NHS Foundation Trust [2019] EWCA Civ 1220 (proportionality); Brown v Commissioner of Police of the Metropolis [2019] EWCA Civ 1724 and Wickes Building Supplies Ltd v Blair (No.2: Costs) [2020] EWCA Civ 17 (QOCS & Fixed Costs); King v City of London Corporation [2019] EWCA Civ 2266 (Part 36 and also detailed assessment of costs); Herbert v HH Law Ltd [2019] EWCA Civ 527 (solicitor client costs).

The new edition also notes the SRA Standards and Regulations 2019 for solicitor/client costs and covers the MoJ’s post implementation review of LASPO, proposals for DBA reform and the consultation on extension of fixed costs.
