Advanced Negotiations Workshop For Litigators, Part 1 – A11

Advanced Negotiations Workshop
Presented by Kronhom Insurance, Business Law Section, Federal Practice Section and Litigation Section

Session A: 9:00 a.m. – 10:30 a.m.

You negotiate every day. In fact, your ability to negotiate may be the most critical skill a litigator can possess. Yet most negotiate instinctively or intuitively. This seminar will help your approach negotiations with a strategic mindset.

And make no mistake – no matter how much you’ve negotiated, you can still learn. Adding that one new tactic may be the difference between winning and walking away empty-handed.

Whether you’re negotiating a settlement or a discovery dispute, this seminar will give you the knowledge, skills and power to deal with negotiation issues you encounter every day.

Martin Latz is one of the nations’ leading experts and instructors on negotiating techniques. A Harvard Law honors graduate, Marty will help you be a better litigator.

You will learn:

  • How to gain “settlement” leverage when seemingly powerless
  • Strategies to get past “No” – when pre-trial resolution appears lost
  • When to make the first offer – and when to wait for trial
  • Techniques to control the negotiation agenda
  • “Courthouse steps” negotiations strategies – powerful ways to address negotiation timing and deadline issues
