Offers of Compromise
The policy of the law is to encourage settlement rather than litigation. One such mechanism is the use of offers of compromise made under the court rules.
A party to court proceedings can make an offer of compromise, under UCPR 20.26, to try and resolve the dispute. If the offer is not accepted then there may be costs consequences if the maker does better than the offer at trial.
