Description

An agreed upon settlement is generally the preferred method of resolving legal disputes. But as hard as it is to get two people to agree on terms, when there’s a third party involved, the complexities can be enormous. And the issues don’t end with a settlement. Aggregate settlements are just that—two or more parties represented by the same lawyer, all agreeing to resolution of claims, defenses or pleas.

This CLE course will offer a complete review of Aggregate Settlements, the applicable Rules of Professional Conduct, what constitutes consent and the advantages to both defendants and plaintiffs of appointing a neutral third party to allocate settlements.
