When negotiating a settlement agreement, it is important to ensure that you receive the broadest release possible, which includes a release of any and all claims that may have been brought by the opposing party or its representatives and affiliates. Obtaining such a release is important even if you are the plaintiff in the case that has been settled.  The absence of such a release in the settlement agreement could open the plaintiff up to claims from a defendant who may be angry at having to pay to settle a case, and who may be looking for revenge after its conclusion.
