Insurance 101 – Chapter 14 – Volume 41 – Ethical Settlement Negotiations

Ethical Settlement Negotiations

An attorney representing a party may not make a false representation of fact.

(If attorneys were required to disclose their clients’ goals or willingness to compromise, it would be difficult to resolve any lawsuit.)
