Abstract

Analyses the approach of the courts to their jurisdiction to make an order for security for costs against an impecunious company under the Companies Act 1985 s.726 and under the CPR r.25.13(2)(c). Compares the courts' interpretation of the two jurisdictions with regard to their extent, their application to counterclaims and interim proceedings, the standard of proof of impecuniosity required, and the circumstances taken into account by the courts when exercising each jurisdiction. Assesses the likely impact of the repeal of s.726 expected on October 1, 2009.
