A compromise is the settlement of a dispute by mutual concession. Generally speaking a compromise occurs most often in a private law context, which is to say in disputes between individuals.
Under the Civil Procedure Rules, offers to settle have become one of the most important elements of the civil justice system; litigation should be viewed as the last resort. Part 36 of the CPR covers offers to settle and payments into court. Compromise can also result from arbitration or mediation.
The purpose of Foskett on Compromise is to provide practitioners with the necessary information to make use of the tools provided under the Rules. The book explains and provides authoritative guidance on the law of compromise and the various contexts in which it can be applied.
