The rules relating to the payment of legal costs are immensely complex and have been the subject of considerable change in recent years. For instance, the Courts and Legal Services Act 1990 has expanded the court's powers to make incompetent and inefficient lawyers pay the costs which they unnecessarily incur, and the courts now exercise wide discretion over the payment of costs at the end of litigation to achieve more just results. This book provides information on all aspects of legal costs including professional remuneration, civil litigation, matrimonial litigation, and costs in criminal proceedings. The book, intended as a practical guide, concentrates on cases likely to be encountered by solicitors in general civil and criminal practice. It offers useful advice on a plethora of subjects from how best to present a claim to a court officer to the efficient billing of clients. Checklists are provided throughout the book.
