Candey Ltd v Bosheh & Anor [2021] EWHC 3409 (Comm)

Legal professional privilege in a fee claim by solicitors against a former client. The Deputy Judge declined to apply the iniquity exception. An alleged conspiracy with a third party does not diminish the client’s right to the protection of privilege over his communications with his lawyers as this was the case upon which they were instructed to represent their client: the matters alleged are within the ordinary course of engagement, and the solicitors could not disclose privileged information for the purposes of proceedings against the client as the protection afforded by privilege was not confined to disclosure to third parties. (Paragraphs 48-49.)
