Addressing Post-Settlement Disputes Efficiently with QSFs

Warrenton, Virginia Jun 3, 2024 ( – Eastern Point Trust Company is pleased to announce the release of a new guide designed to address the challenging intricacies of post-settlement litigation disputes. The guide focuses on utilizing Qualified Settlement Funds (QSFs), also known as 468B trusts, as a streamlined solution for efficient settlement fund management and dispute resolution.

It is not uncommon for secondary disputes to arise following a litigation settlement or court award. These disputes can range from family disagreements over their “fair share” to lawyers disputing fee splits, plaintiffs contesting attorney fees, and third-party lien holders emerging to stake claims against the litigation proceeds. Such complexities often hinder the settlement process and prolong the resolution.

Eastern Point Trust Company’s newly released guide provides detailed insights into how QSFs can be employed to manage these disputes effectively. By offering a structured approach to fund management and tax compliance and providing the necessary time for informed decision-making, QSFs present a viable solution to post-settlement challenges.

Sam Kott, Vice President of Eastern Point Trust Company, emphasized the significance of the guide, stating, “This guide explores the advantages of QSFs, specifically their ability to address complex issues such as post-settlement disputes, secondary litigation, and lien resolution. The guide also provides direction on navigating post-settlement challenges and highlights the benefits of QSFs in achieving the best possible outcomes for all parties involved.”

The guide delves into the various advantages of utilizing QSFs, including:

  • Efficient Fund Management: QSFs ensure that settlement funds are FDIC-insured, reduce misallocation risks, and ensure fair distribution.
  • Tax Compliance: QSFs help maintain compliance with tax regulations, thereby minimizing potential tax liabilities for the parties involved.
  • Informed Decision-Making: By providing time and space for thoughtful decision-making, QSFs help to resolve disputes amicably and equitably.

Eastern Point Trust Company invites legal professionals, plaintiffs, and all interested parties to explore the guide and discover the transformative potential of QSFs in post-settlement dispute resolution. To read the complete guide and learn more about the advantages of QSFs, visit here.
