To be a lawyer ...
… means to be a negotiator.
Whether you are settling a claim in international arbitration, concluding a high-stake merger deal, agreeing on a representation strategy with a colleague, or devising a liability clause in a contract, negotiation skills make all the difference when it comes to standing out as an exceptional lawyer.
But more than that: It is not just the quality of results that is widely impacted by your negotiation strategy and skills. Client satisfaction has been proven to be directly related to effective communication and a strong focus on client interests, also known as the client-centric negotiation approach.
Your clients’ perception of the process and the way you manage a case or dispute has become just as important as the results, and negotiation skills are the golden bridge between outstanding legal results and superior client satisfaction.
