Kevin D. Franz Recently Published in The Florida Bar’s the Solo & Small Firm Section’s Publication – The Link “The Impact of Typos in Proposals for Settlement”

August 29, 2018 by on News

The Solo & Small Firm Section of The Florida Bar published an article written by Kevin D. Franz of Boyd & Jenerette, P.A. in its quarterly publication, the LINK.  The article is titled “The Impact of Typoes Typos In Proposals For Settlement.”  Proposals for settlement are hotly contested in most cases because thousands upon thousands of dollars in attorney’s fees turn on their validity.  

The article discusses the impact that seemingly minor typos have on the enforceability of otherwise viable proposals for settlement.  For example, a misplaced apostrophe, number, or letter may render an otherwise valid proposal, unenforceable.   The article alerts practitioners to common typographical errors and outlines the general trend in Florida law against nit-picking language in proposals for settlement.  It also suggests how to proceed upon realizing a previously served proposal contains a typographical error.
