JSM – Joint Settlement Meeting

 A JSM can be arranged at any time to decide and agree on points of the case. Heads of claim, causation, interim figures, settlement figures etc. 

Initial JSM usually involves claimants solicitor, Barrister and experts to agree on causation and initial particulars of claim. 

Could then be a JSM to agree on the percentage offered prior to the Interim period. 

JSM could be called during the interim if needed to agree on accommodation needs if disputed. 

JSM after reports disclosed if no agreement reached. 

JSM at the end of interim to ratify heads of claim and figures. Aim of a JSM is to reach agreement prior to full trial. Most of our cases reach settlement at JSM i.e. ‘out of court settlement’. Then ‘rubber stamped’ or approved formally by the High Court Judge within 28 days.
