My name is ***** ***** I am a NSW Solicitor. Thank you for your question, and will do my best to assist you with your question. Please understand this is not legal advise Please understand this is not legal advice but a guide to assist you.
So the defendant has filed the appeal?
What court was this in?
The appeal has to be filed in 28 days from my understading and the Uniform Civil Procedure Rules
I would suggest that your legal team write to them and ask them the grounds of the appeal.
Before you make any offer of compromise, you should have the matter looked at by a barrister and get advise on the chances of success of the appeal and if need seek an order for security for costs to make sure they pay money into court to cover your costs if they lose.
I am not privy to anything but I find it strange to make an offer when you do not know the grounds.
They have to file something with the court in the 28 days if not then they may have to seek leave.
All the best
