Just because your client and his/her adversary have seemingly reached a resolution in principle of their dispute, that does not necessarily mean that the matter is over. All too often, a supposed settlement, particularly in a commercial matter, is not actually consummated or somehow goes awry. This program addresses enforceability and ethical issues that can arise in the context of settlement negotiations or a mediation and as to settlement agreements.
