Part 36: Example letter to defendant client about offer made by claimant (with drafting notes)

This is an example letter (with integrated drafting notes) that could be used to explain the implications of a Part 36 offer made by the claimant to your client, where your client is the defendant. For an example of a letter where the offer was made before 6 April 2015, see Standard document, Part 36: Example letter to defendant client about offer made before 6 April 2015 by claimant (with drafting notes).

The letter is drafted on the basis of certain assumptions that are set out in the drafting notes. It is important to read the drafting notes as you will need to adapt the letter if these assumptions do not apply.
