introduces the processes and procedures involved in making and defending civil litigation claims. Following the chronological progression of a civil litigation claim, the volume offers practical guidance on advising clients whilst ensuring that the principles of the Solicitors’ Regulation Authority Handbook and Code of Conduct 2011 are maintained.
