Extent of without-prejudice  privilege before dispute

Barnetson v. Framlington Group Ltd. and Another 

Court of Appeal

“When considering whether evidence of prelitigation disputes between the parties should be excluded under without-prejudice privilege, the critical feature of proximity to the litigation was the subject matter of the dispute rather than how long before the threat or start of litigation the matter was aired in negotiations between the parties.”
