Hidden Pitfalls in Claims Settlement — Top Ten Tips to Ensure Settled Claims Remain Settled

Thursday, February 19, 2015 | 12:00 PM (Central)


Follow two seasoned trial lawyers into the arena where claims once thought to be settled, could come unraveled. The discussion will involve the top ten points to consider in developing and agreeing to a settlement agreement, such as the scope and breadth of the agreement, whether the waivers include future or even intentional acts, when counsel should get involved and other related issues.


Topics of discussion will include:

  • Understand your client's business before you start threatening the other side
  • Beware of form releases and boilerplate provisions
  • Employment claims and ethical considerations
  • Pitfalls in settlement negotiations
  • Limitations on use of information obtained in litigation
  • Admissibility of settlement discussions — Not every state has a rule akin to FRE 408
  • Tax treatment of settlement amounts
  • Arbitration — when it works and when it doesn't
  • Don't forget the California Rule
  • Liquidated damages vs. penalties — when does a liquidated damages provision go too far?

William D. Blakely, Shareholder | Polsinelli

Defense is a matter of course for William (Bill) Blakely. As a former Marine Corps aviator, he turned a career based upon operating and maintaining complicated aviation equipment into a national civil litigation trial practice that uses this experience to explain to juries and tribunals how and why complicated equipment or processes work. Bill served on active duty in a US Marine Corps Reconnaissance Squadron and completed his military service with twenty additional years as a Judge Advocate General (JAG) in the U.S. Marine Corps Reserves. This background uniquely positioned him for a practice that includes significant experience litigating aviation accidents, construction claims, disputes and disasters, and advising clients of risks that potentially could have devastating consequences on them or on their company.

Sean R. Gallagher, Shareholder | Polsinelli

Sean Gallagher has spent more than 25 years fighting for his clients in boardrooms and courtrooms across the country, and is one of only a handful of lawyers in Colorado history to have argued a case in the Supreme Court of the United States and prevailed with a unanimous decision. Sean has been elected by his peers as a Fellow in the College of Labor and Employment Lawyers for his "sustained outstanding performance in the profession." Noted by the Chambers USA guide for his "excellent follow through," Sean's active trial and appellate practice emphasizes three general areas: commercial litigation, employment counseling/litigation, and constitutional/public policy matters.
