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 not only states the law, as set out in the latest legislation, court rules, forms and case law, but also identifies and, where possible, tackles issues and inconsistencies. 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 changes made by recent CPR Updates, including the variation of costs budgets and restructuring of CPR 3 and PD3E (the 122nd CPR Update) and changes to proportionality and CPR 36 (the 127th CPR Update) and cases such as Zuberi v Lexlaw Ltd [2021] EWCA Civ 16; Rowe and others v Ingenious Media [2021] EWCA Civ 29; Ho v Adelekun [2020] EWCA Civ 517; Lejonvarn v Burgess [2020] EWCA Civ 114; Belsner v Cam Legal Services Ltd [2020] EWHC 2755 (QB); Blackpool Borough Council v Volkerfitzpatrick Limited and Ors [2020] EWHC 2128 (TCC) and Chapelgate Credit Opportunity Master Fund Ltd v Money and others [2020] EWCA Civ 246.
Edited by former Senior Costs Judge Peter Hurst, with contributions from District Judge Simon Middleton and barrister Roger Mallalieu, this is an authoritative and unique book that any practitioner involved with costs cannot afford to be without.
Subscribers to the White Book Service 2021 are offered this book – worth £99 – gratis as part of their subscription.
