Drafting settlement offers and deeds can be deceptively complicated with traps for even the most experienced practitioners.

Settlement deeds are often drafted in a rush relying on standard precedent clauses without proper consideration of the individual circumstances of the settlement. This can lead to unintended consequences if the deed is subsequently scrutinised and exposed to a professional negligence claim.

This comprehensive seminar addresses the above concerns and covers:

  • Best practice tips on drafting settlement offers, common mistakes and how to avoid them
  • The pros and cons of Order 24A v Calderbank offers
  • Drafting to ensure your client obtains the full costs benefits of the settlement offer
  • Legal principles regarding the interpretation of settlement deeds by courts
