The Lawyer as Advocate

Friday, October 16, 2020

Location: Via Zoom Meeting

There are some basic premises about negotiating, generally, and about negotiating with other advocates. Those basic premises apply a bit differently, or at least with different emphasis, based on the type of matter and context. Additionally, negotiating between parties is fundamentally different than negotiating with a third-party payor.

8:30 a.m. – 11:45 a.m. (15 minute break mid-morning)

THE LAWYER AS ADVOCATE will discuss practical aspects of negotiation involving

  • Business and commercial litigation
  • Divorce
  • Famiy-insured litigation
  • Negotiation between parties
  • Negotiation with a third-party payor

Emphasis will be placed on particular illustrations and ensuing discussion of what was – and what was not – successful.
