Russian term or phrase:Коней на переправе не меняют.
This is referring to an instance where the speaker is asking that lawyers not be changed in mid-process.
It is clear what this means: 'One does not change horses as the crossing.' Might anyone have a good, more colloquial expression in English for this?
