Draft a Settlement Agreement
“Simple solutions seldom are. It takes a very unusual mind to undertake analysis of the obvious.”
~Alfred North Whitehead
Negotiation is stressful and strenuous, so drafting a mediated settlement agreement at 10:00 p.m. is a recipe for malpractice. Prepare a settlement agreement and take it to the mediation, either on your laptop or printed with room for changes and additions. Make sure you include the necessary non-monetary terms.
The period after an exhausting mediation is no time to test your legal drafting skills. The cost of preparing the agreement before knowing if there will be a settlement will be more than offset by the benefits conferred by analysis required for drafting and the confidence that nothing has been overlooked.
