Offers of Compromise and You


Offers of Compromise are being used more frequently lately. So, we felt it would be useful to review the law authorizing and interpreting these offers.

Offers of compromise are written offers of settlement, containing a sum certain, filed by a party with the court. Connecticut case law repeatedly cites encouragement of settlement or other pretrial resolution as the purpose of such offers. Thus, the courts have agreed to construe and apply the applicable statutes liberally as a means to effectuate public policy.

This article outlines the requirements for filing an offer of compromise, accepting an offer of compromise, when an offer of compromise is not accepted, unified offers of compromise, and motions for extensions of time to respond to an offer of compromise.
