This book is intended to assist practitioners navigating the non-party costs jurisdiction. Non-party costs orders have become increasingly prevalent since the court's power to make them was confirmed in 1986. Though judges have a wide discretion in this regard, the jurisprudence that has developed on this topic offers important guidance as to its exercise.

The principles that have underpinned the making of non-party costs orders generally are introduced in part one. Part two considers the application and development of those principles in relation to seven specific non-parties. Finally, the procedure involved in obtaining a non-party costs order is set out in part three.


Charles Shwenn is a barrister with a broad commercial chancery practice. He has a particular interest in the law of costs and civil procedure, on which he regularly writes and advises.
