Sometimes you will get more money from resolving your problems without going to court. Learn how to do it in this episode. Slow dialog: 1:26 Explanations: 3:36 Fast dialog: 16:44 Nadia: I’m not sure about this civil lawsuit. I don’t want a long trial. Andre: Relax. This case will never go to trial. For disputes of this kind, neither party wants to fight it out in court, so we almost always reach a settlement. Nadia: If we do go to court, the legal fees could skyrocket. I couldn’t afford that. Andre: If we reach a settlement, you won’t have to worry too much about that. Nadia: All right, but what if they don’t want to admit wrongdoing? Andre: If we reach a settlement, they don’t need to. They’ll simply pay out. Nadia: Even if they don’t admit it, at least I’ll be able to talk freely about it. Andre: Well, that might be a problem. Many settlements require confidentiality – from both parties. Nadia: You mean if I settle, I can’t talk about it? Andre: If there is a confidentiality clause, you’d be in breach of contract if you discussed the settlement. Nadia: I didn’t know that. You mean I can’t talk about what they did to me without getting my day in court? Andre: That’s the long and short of it. Nadia: I guess justice is blind – but only for the rich!
