Costs

Guidebook

The Costs Guidebook is a practical introduction to costs, featuring a suite of customisable precedents for compulsory costs disclosure and fee agreements.

First published in 1994, this popular publication is produced by the Law Society’s Costs Committee and has been regularly revised ever since.

Costs Guidebook 7th Edition

The latest edition applies where instructions were first received from your client on or after 1 July 2015 or where proceedings commenced on or after 1 July 2015.

This guidebook incorporates feedback received from practitioners about previous editions and has been written with the needs of young practitioners in mind. The Law Society hopes that it also inspires experienced practitioners to review the engagement, client communication and risk management procedures in their practices.
