The modern age of litigation often finds itself concluding in the boardroom more than the courtroom. For many practitioners, settlement offers, discussions and agreements are commonplace. This seminar is essential for new practitioners who want to learn the practical side of what they don’t teach you about litigation in law school. 


  • Imperative clauses to include/exclude
  • Execution requirements or other nuances
  • Enforcement and breach
  • What experience has taught me
  • §998 offers of compromise; effect and standards

This program is part 1 of a 3 part series giving practitioners a front row look at settlements. Dates for parts 2 and 3 TBA.
