At the heart of this reform is the fast track: handling cases profitably in an era of strict cost controls is vital to the success of every civil litigator. The author's practice operates streamlined procedures combining high quality service to clients with expert use of management techniques in dealing with IT, personnel and finance issues. The firm has grown substantially, without becoming a litigation factory. This book shares the key tools needed to analyse and implement the necessary systems in your practice. "
