Scotland Moves Toward Disclosure Of Third Party Funding

  1. Without knowing the full reach of the disclosure obligations it is difficult to comment with specifics.
    Generally the trend across most jurisdictions is for more disclosure of funding.
    There is the obvious tension around a defendant or respondent gaining access to the commercial terms of an applicant’s funding arrangement. But beyond that, as long as disclosure is relevant then I don’t believe funders would have an issue.
    It really does come back to the relevance of any disclosure, and limiting the extent of disclosure to information that addresses the relevancy. This challenges a “one size fits all” approach to disclosure.

    1. Thank you for providing comment Neil. I would like to add this into the original article. Happy for me to do that? – Patrick
