Philip Marshall QC and James Mather, assisted by Oliver Jones, obtained an injunction to prevent solicitors from acting for the principal creditor in a bankruptcy where they also acted for the trustee in bankruptcy and had in that capacity received privileged materials.  The case raised an important point of principle about the extent to which a trustee in bankruptcy is entitled to obtain and make use of documents subject to legal professional privilege in favour of the bankrupt.
