Quinn Direct Insurance Ltd v The Law Society of England and Wales  EWCA Civ 805;  WLR (D) 185
“There was no reason to imply into the statutory scheme for the regulation of solicitors any provision or term entitling or obliging the Law Society to produce to a qualifying insurer documents emanating from a firm of solicitors into which it had intervened which were subject to the privilege of a client of the firm. If the client consented or his privilege was impliedly waived by a claim against the solicitor then there was no reason why the Law Society, as it had done, could not produce such documents to the qualifying insurer.”
