Event Details

Charlottetown PEI - The Lawyer's Day Job - Negotiating Where Relationships Matter

Building Skills as a Settlement Advocate

Charlottetown, Prince Edward island


About This Event

Lawyers spend far more time negotiating than they do litigating.  Handling negotiations with or on behalf of clients requires some different skills and appraoches. When parties have an ongoing business or personal relationship to manage, it gets tricky to handle their legal dispute in a way that meets their future relationship needs. In this two-day interactive workshop, you will learn how to:

  • Communicate more  effectively with your own client - It starts at "hello"!
  • Establish rapport with the "other side" - the lawyer and the other party
  • Handle "tactics" that show up at the negotiating table
  • Manage your professional responsibility to be a "zealous advocate" while attending to clients' relationship needs
  • Be more authentic and effective in practice
