A leading set specialising in commercial, construction, insurance and property law
Fully updated to include the most recent and important developments in law and practice, this book is a practical guide setting out the main issues and challenges that arise when clients challenge their solicitor’s bill. Covering the rules, statutes, case law etc but also providing guidance as to terms of retainers as well as practical guidance on the process of assessing charges.
This area of law is complex and is still not well known by many solicitors or even non-specialist judges. Also, following LASPO and probable fixed costs extensions, clients are now far more likely to have to pay their own costs and challenges to solicitor’s fees are increasingly common. This book is written in a clear manner so that anyone from clients and trainees to partners and judges can benefit from it.
The text for the second edition has been fully expanded and updated to include numerous important High Court and Court of Appeal authorities handed down since the last edition was published.
Robin is a leading costs practitioner, recommended by both Chambers & Partners and Legal 500 in the area.
