 Recorded Webinar: Back to Basics: Drafting Settlement Deeds following Estate Litigation

Date: Friday 11th March 2022
Duration: Approximately 1 Hour

Deals done at the courtroom door or following mediation are a common ending to protracted disputes. The preparation of a settlement deed or checklist in advance means you can take control of the negotiations with your own document, ensuring a quick resolution with all the bases covered. This session will set out the key elements of settlement arrangements in the estate litigation context, including:

  • Accurate naming and details of parties and any relevant third parties
  • Framing recitals and non-admission of liability
  • Defining the dispute – what is the deed settling?
  • Describing relevant property and other assets to be paid, transferred or provided and the responsibility for associated taxes or duties
  • Next steps – both interim and long term
  • Relevant warranties and indemnities
  • Releasing the parties and any third parties
  • Liability for legal costs
  • Confidentiality and non-disparagement obligations
  • Obtaining independent legal advice
