Shlosberg v Avonwick Holdings Ltd and others

Bankruptcy – Privilege. The Chancery Division ruled that the claimant's trustees in the bankruptcy had acquired the benefit of his legal professional privilege with respect to one of three categories of documents held by the second defendant solicitors, who were also acting for the claimant's creditor (A). Both A and the claimant had been engaged in hostile litigation. In all the circumstances, no order was granted requiring the solicitors to cease acting for the trustees. However, an injunction was granted requiring the solicitors to cease acting for A.
