The recent case of Excalibur Ventures LLC v Texas Keystone Inc and others  EWHC 3436 (Comm),  All ER (D) 300 (Oct) held that third party litigation funders were liable for indemnity costs awarded against the party they funded.
Our Dispute Resolution colleagues have prepared and blogged some analysis which can be accessed by clicking here.
This case will be of interest to those involved in insolvency litigation who use third party litigation funding. Such funding may become more prevalent if the current exemption for the recovery of success fees and ATE insurance premiums in insolvency proceedings comes to an end in April 2015 as presently scheduled (the removal of the insolvency exemption from the Jackson Reforms). The decision in the case might also be relevant as to whether it impacts on creditors who fund insolvency litigation in circumstances where they do not seek to make a profit.
