Litigation Funding Handbook

General Editor: Rocco Pirozzolo

Overview

Litigation Funding Handbook is a comprehensive guide to the extensive changes to costs and funding introduced by the Jackson reforms in April 2013. This radical overhaul of the litigation funding regime has impacted all civil litigators.

The handbook examines the various types of funding agreements available and looks at the issues that practitioners need to consider. This review includes:

  • Proportionality
  • Costs management
  • CFAs as well as ATE and BTE insurance
  • The introduction of damages-based agreements
  • Third party funding
  • The introduction of qualified one-way costs shifting in bodily injury cases
  • Changes in general damages and Part 36.

Written by leading experts, Litigation Funding Handbook takes an in-depth and authoritative look at some of the most fundamental and far-reaching changes to funding and costs management. The handbook's expert authors highlight the issues to be considered in a practical and user friendly guide (with useful appendices) for all lawyers. Essential reading for all involved in civil litigation in the new, post-Jackson world.


Reviews

"This book is a practical manual for the modern litigator and should sit in plain view at all times. Quite simply, it has the potential to shape the way in which litigators do business both now and in the future."

Christopher Deadman, Litigation Futures

"I have every confidence that practitioners will find the Funding Handbook an invaluable addition to their existing book shelves."

Nick Bacon QC
