Court of Appeal
“It was desirable that a litigant should be free to instruct the lawyer of his choice, particularly if that lawyer was already acting for the litigant who wished him to act in a related manner. It was hard to conceive of circumstances where the fact that documents had been disclosed to lawyers acting for a party in one set of proceedings would preclude those lawyers from acting in other proceedings between the same parties.”
