Awarding Attorneys’ Fees and Managing Fee Litigation (Third Edition) analyzes the law of attorneys' fee awards under fee-shifting statutes, the common fund doctrine and its progeny, and the substantial benefit doctrine. It explains the issues that federal judges are most likely to encounter in attorneys’ fees litigation, including discretionary awards to non-prevailing parties, valuation of class settlements, empirical studies of class action fee awards, and changes in the PSLRA. The monograph also describes judicial techniques for case management and discusses relevant local rules.
