Work Toward a Settlement Before Trial with Goodwin Law & Mediation

As a case moves toward trial, retaining independent settlement counsel can be helpful in a number of ways. It solves a number of issues that arise when litigation counsel handles both trial preparation and settlement negotiation. When litigating counsel tries to arrange a settlement, the other side may perceive that the litigation’s case is weak, making them less likely to accept a reasonable settlement agreement. 

Additionally, any time the litigating counsel spends on settlement negotiation takes away from time spent on trial preparation. Independent settlement counsel can negotiate a fair agreement without taking resources from trial preparation or weakening the litigation’s case. Settlement counsel is helpful in many areas of law, including commercial law, contract disputes, real estate law, insurance issues, and more.
