Law of Costs, 3E written by Gino Dal Pont aims to provide a comprehensive overview of the Australian law of costs in both the lawyer-client and the party-party context. It addresses all Australian jurisdictions (State and Federal), as well as costs in criminal matters, through the relevant statutes, court rules and case law. Law of Costs brings together in one place, the legislation, court rules and case law pertaining to the practice of the law of costs in Australia. Accessible and comprehensive, this work avoids repetition, but at the same time contains detailed referencing. Not only does Law of Costs examine the law that has developed surrounding how a solicitor or barrister should quantify and handle their own costs, but it is also a fundamental reference text with detailed analysis of the law of costs in Australia. All major cases, relevant statutes and statutory rules are dealt with, including the Supreme Court Rules. Reference is also made to the applicable law of the United Kingdom, Canada and New Zealand. The main subjects covered within Law of Costs are all aspects of fees as between solicitor and client (justifying a copy of the text in every fee-charging law practice in the land) and costs as between parties to litigation. Law of Costs also covers security for costs, solicitors' liens, costs orders against non-parties such as parties' solicitors, litigation funders and insurers, and about setting aside costs agreements.
