The Shorter Trials Scheme (STS) pilot, which commenced on 1 October 2015, is operating in the Rolls Building Courts until 30 September 2018. Judgment has now been given following the first trial to take place under the scheme. The value of the dispute was US$68M and it concerned discrete issues of contractual interpretation which were resolved by the Commercial Court within just nine months of the claim being commenced. The Judgment, which was handed down just two weeks after the trial, indicates that even for high-value disputes, lengthy litigation and significant costs are not always necessary for a resolution to be reached.

On 18 November 2016, the Court of Appeal provided some helpful clarity with regard to the potential costs liability funders may face in circumstances where their funded party is unable to meet a costs order. The decision emphasises that the derivative nature of a commercial funder's involvement should ordinarily lead to the funder being required to contribute to the costs on the same basis as those which it funds. A funder cannot dissociate itself from the conduct of those it has enabled to conduct the litigation and upon whom it relies to make a return on its investment.
