The purpose of this article is to more fully describe the concept of postsettlement settlements, to discuss the assumptions upon which it is based, to critique the concept, and to make proposals that will assist third-party intervenors in achieving advantageous post-settlement settlements. Since the goal of post-settlement settlements is to increase conflicting parties' joint gains, the concept of joint gains must be first addressed.
