Are Settlement Agreements Written on the Backs of Napkins Enforceable?

Contrato en Servilleta2016 | Septiembre 27
For the last three years, your team has been working feverishly on an epic bet-the-company complex litigation matter. The lawyers are exhausted. The business leaders have grown impatient. The judge has had enough. Finally, after an action-packed period of fact depositions and just prior to the exchange of expert reports, there appears to be a beam of light streaming from the litigation sky. Both parties have agreed to a mediation that will be attended by business leaders who have the authority to settle the case.

Lawyers and their clients swoop into town from all over the country. Each team spends the night prior to the mediation bonding over the mutual disdain of the other side’s lead counsel.

Un pensamiento en “Are Settlement Agreements Written on the Backs of Napkins Enforceable?

  1. Isn’t this an age-old issue whose essence is “an agreement is an agreement.”? Perhaps even more so. An agreement on a napkin essentially means that a lot has been discussed and that, finally, the essence has become clear to both parties, essence that fits within the confines of a breakfast paper napkin. Interesting, though, no one writes or signs on a cloth napkin.
