Tim Martin Interiors Ltd v Akin Gump LLP; [2011] EWCA Civ 1574;  [2011] WLR (D)  39

“As regards quantification and repayment, a third party assessment under section 71 of the Solicitors Act 1974 was of limited use to a third party, since, after payment, it was not possible to require solicitors to pay to the third party money which they had received from their client and which the client was bound to pay them, merely because the third party was not liable to pay the same amount to the client.”
