Ethics Inquiry into DSK Victim's French Lawyer

DSK's alleged victim has retained the services of a French lawyer, who has been charged by her American lawyer with searching for other supposed DSK victims in France. The head of the Paris bar association says that such a search for victims is unprecedented in France and has called in the attorney in question, Me Thibault de Montbrial, to determine whether the procedure is a violation of French legal ethics.

I don't understand: I get it that looking for previous victims is "unprecedented", but how can it be an ethical problem? Wouldn't it be unethical in fact to prevent the search for previous victims?
BTW, if the case collapses and previous victims were found, what would happen?
