Virgin Media Communications Ltd and others v British Sky Broadcasting Group plc and another  EWCA Civ 612;  WLR (D) 183
“It was desirable that a litigant should be free to instruct the lawyer of his choice, particularly if that lawyer were already acting for him and he wished the lawyer to continue to act in a related matter. 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.”
