West Ham Football Club entered into an agreement with E20, owners of the London Stadium, to use the venue for its home football matches. A dispute arose as to the number of seats in the stadium West Ham was entitled to use. West Ham wished to inspect six emails passing between the E20 board members and stakeholders which discussed a commercial proposal for the settlement of the dispute. E20 resisted the disclosure application on the basis that the emails were privileged.
