ZS v FS

Family – Divorce. The husband's application for an injunction to debar the wife's solicitors from representing her in divorce proceedings would be dismissed. The Family Division held that although a representative of the husband had had a meeting prior to the instigation of the present proceedings, nothing of substance and no confidential information had been disclosed to the wife's solicitors such that would preclude the wife's solicitors from representing the wife. On balance, the evidence suggested that the meeting in question had been short and uninformative rather than the detailed, fact heavy and advice heavy meeting that the husband had sought to portray.
