An effective demand letter needs to consider what a defendant thinks about before deciding to settle. All defendants are different, however, generally, defendants will settle when the costs of litigation and the risk of an adverse judgement are high enough that settlement seems like the less expensive option. A good demand letter shows the defendant they should settle rather than go to court.

There are three main ways to do this. The first strategy is to use the facts show the defendant that he or she is risking an adverse judgement in court. Facts are powerful. Compelling facts can convince the toughest judges and juries. In some cases, a convincing presentation of the facts can persuade defendants to settle. The second strategy is to show the defendant that their conduct violated the law what the legal consequences of their actions are. When a defendant sees the law, they may suddenly reconsider defending the matter in court and could be motivated to settle. This works best when the defendant breaks the law in an obvious way and damages are easy to see. The third strategy is an appeal to a defendant’s sense of thrift. Time is money and business owners are busy. They do not want to deal with the time and expense of a lawsuit. A demand letter gives them the option of settling and relieving themselves of a headache before it becomes a migraine.
