Test case for disclosing identity of litigation funders

Stuart Barrie Wall v The Royal Bank of Scotland plc [2016] EWHC 2460 (Comm), 7 October 2016

Without knowing the identity of those funders (if any), RBS was effectively precluded from protecting its financial position in the main proceedings.
