A claimant solicitor can back a claimant to the hilt based on instructions and an assessment of that individual.

If the court (following cross-examination) says the claimant is fundamentally dishonest then immediately there is an obvious breach of any CFA plus there is a huge conflict as the solicitor has also been wronged by false instructions.

Coming off the record is necessary in such cases, and not really discretionary (in my view).

Naturally, dodgy solicitors running dodgy cases should be hung up.
