Lamont v. Burton  EWCA Civ 429
“In a road traffic accident claim the claimant’s solicitors, operating under a conditional fee agreement providing for a success fee, were entitled to a 100 per cent success fee under CPR Pt 45 where the claimant had won at trial, even though he failed to exceed an earlier payment into court. There was no discretion to award a lesser increase.”
