Settlement Agreement Consideration

The basic conditions of a valid contract include offer, acceptance, consideration, contracting, objectivity, etc. Local laws, including a fraud law, may impose additional requirements. It is therefore essential, when developing a transaction agreement, to ensure that the terms of a valid contract are met. Once an agreement is reached, it can be formalized and documented: the transaction contract should be executed by persons authorized to do so. This is particularly important in the Middle East, as many jurisdictions, including the United Arab Emirates, require the signatory to have explicit powers to implement transaction agreements or, at the very least, to bind the company (for example. B, Article 58.2 of the United Arab Emirates Code of Civil Procedure). To have as much security as possible, document your agreement in a settlement agreement.

The Supreme Court found that evidence of the factual matrix against which the agreement was reached could be construed as aid to interpretation, even if the evidence came from negotiations without prejudice. The settlement means that the parties to the dispute have decided to end this dispute. The parties may agree to settle their dispute at any time, even before the proceedings begin and even after the sentencing. Negotiations for a transaction negotiation, when pursued in good faith by the parties, are generally considered «unprejudiced». This means that the details of the negotiations generally cannot be used as evidence of an admission by one of the parties, unless it becomes necessary to verify whether a transaction has been concluded. If the parties opt for mediation, discussions in the mediation will also be considered unscathed. 3. The intention to create legal relations – in other words, it must be clear that the parties intended to reach a final and binding settlement of their dispute.
