In a recent case (Re Hellas Telecommunications (Luxembourg) [2017] EWHC 3465 (Ch)), the Defendant requested the information in order to consider whether to apply for security for costs again a non-party and was successful. Snowden J ordered the respondent liquidators to disclose the identity of the funders of the litigation and the terms on which the funding was provided.

The judge held that the Court had the power to make orders so as to enable a party to make an effective application under CPR 25.14. Whilst the Defendant was successful, the Judge limited the relevant disclosure and ordered that it not be disclosed to third parties.
