Are success fees illegal?

The Court of Appeal has called for written submissions by friday in the case of De Souza where oral argument has already concluded.The claimant sued the local authority over tree root encroachment.The insurer paid out the claimant,took up rights of subrogation and entered into a ccfa.The claimant was fully insured so why the need for a funding arrangement? Might this breach the right of D to a fair trial under Article 6?
 Campbell has had a faster impact than anyone ever thought possible.
