Jonathan Pratt and Doug Wass provide a warning on unintended settlements

In the recent case of Bieber v Teathers Ltd (in liquidation) [2014], Judge Pelling QC (sitting as a judge of the High Court) held that the parties had concluded a settlement agreement in an exchange of emails, notwithstanding the fact that the parties subsequently failed to agree the terms of a formal written settlement agreement.
