amicably or after/through legal proceedings

I think you were right about the amicable part, but I would not use "through force" myself. Source is Van den End's Legal Lexicon.

To Andre: I honestly believe that to settle matters "amicably" is just as much legalese as to settle matters "by agreement". It is simply an alternative, nothing more, and for the above context most likely a better suggestion too. But let's mutually agree to settle this matter amicably :).

  -> I think 'amicably' is pretty standard.

neutral  Siobhan Schoonhoff-Reilly: 'mutual agreement' is soooooo much better!

agree  Els Spin: I would go for 'amicably'. 'To sell (and to settle...) amicably' is pretty standard. Also, it conveys the direct contrast to 'gerechtelijk' as intended, which 'by mutual agreement' does not convey. / L'amiables? Ik ken hier alleen maar miserables :-)
