Description

A settlement agreement is an agreement to terminate, by means of mutual concessions, a claim which is disputed in good faith. It is an amicable method of settling or resolving bona fide differences or uncertainties and is designed to prevent or put an end to litigation. Public policy favors settlement of litigation. It is well-settled public policy that settlement agreements are highly favored and will be enforced whenever possible.

Courts consider a settlement agreement as a contract, and construction and enforcement of settlement agreements are governed by principles of contract law. Accordingly, a settlement agreement is enforceable if the elements of a contract are present: " An agreement; " Between competent parties; " Based upon the genuine assent of the parties; " Supported by consideration; " Made for a lawful objective; and " In the form required by law.
