It said it intends to begin proceedings against the bank “this side of Christmas” and believed it had a strong legal case.

“We have been working over the last year to fully investigate the strength of our claim. We know Clydesdale have a very serious case to answer and do not understand how, on the basis of the evidence we have seen, they will propose to defend this,” said Garbhan Shanks of law firm Michelmores, which is working with RGL.

Litigation finance firm Augusta Ventures is funding the case. The claimants will receive 65 per cent of any sum awarded over £375m.
