Non-Qualified Settlement Solutions

Non-Qualified Assignment (NQA) may be used to resolve a deadlocked legal dispute or to structure payments for an agreed upon settlement in a non-physical injury case. This solution offers advantages for both claimants and defendants. Non-Qualified Assignments are designed to accept the transfer of future periodic payment obligations from defendants in non-physical injury settlements. Non-Qualified Assignments offered through MetLife can be funded with all or a portion of the settlement. When to consider non-qualified assignment:

  • Employment litigation, such as wrongful termination, sexual harassment, discrimination, and breach of contract disputes
  • Disputes between developers and municipalities
  • Construction defect
  • Contract disputes
  • Punitive damages
  • Environmental claims
  • D&O and E&O claims
  • Attorney fees associated with these types of cases
