10 May 2023

In the decision of Hyflux Ltd (in compulsory liquidation) and others v Lum Ooi Lin [2023] SGHC 113, the Singapore High Court was faced with the issue of whether an undertaking from the plaintiffs’ litigation funders could constitute an adequate form of security for costs. On the facts of the case, the Court held that plaintiffs were not restricted to any fixed form of security for costs.
