In this 20th episode of our series of commercial litigation update podcasts, we look at the High Court’s decision dismissing ClientEarth’s attempt to bring a derivative action against Shell’s directors, the Supreme Court’s rather dramatic recent decision on litigation funding agreements, a brief update on a development relating to representative actions, some interesting recent contract law cases, and a Supreme Court judgment which clarifies the extent of a bank’s duties in paying out from customer accounts.
