In his Foreword Lord Wilson describes the book as "magisterial" and comments upon its weight, breadth and value, in respect to the subjects it covers. He commends the book for use by family judges. It is a book that no family lawyer or costs draftsman can afford to be without.
"bravo ... good reasons in many cases why arbitration will be the most appropriate form of DR" FamilyArbitrator @FamArbOrg
"pitch perfect for #familylaw costs issues ... relevant technical detail w/o descending into unfathomable costs geekery!" Rhys Taylor @RhysTaylor32
"this is a really excellent book .. great addition to the library" D Maxwell-Stewart @DuncanM_S
"the authors themselves note that theirs is a 'Cinderella subject' being both neglected and ignored but requiring greater recognition in light of recent substantial changes to the costs terrain ... their intention is to explain and illuminate the different costs regimes in family proceedings - to make us 'fearless as to costs'. Do they succeed? I do not think that costs will ever be a subject about which I am 'fearless' but this is certainly an excellent book to bring anxiety levels down to acceptable levels" Sarah Phillimore, Barrister, St John's Chambers
"it is extraordinary that until now, there has been no authoritative text on costs in the specific context of family proceedings'' Lord Wilson
"no family lawyer or cost draftsman can afford to be without" Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor, Richmond Green Chambers
