Negotiations in the Hallways: Avoiding the Pitfalls While Getting to Yes

Monday, May 6, 2013 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM
Boston Bar Association - 16 Beacon Street, Boston, MA


Negotiations between parties frequently occur over the course of several months or even years; but there are increasingly other types of negotiation: those that occur in the hallway of a court room where there is a "lawyer of the day" type program. There, the expectations are that the matter will be resolved very quickly and presented to the court. This session explores the latter type of negotiation. It will focus on the ethical considerations as well as some of the practical questions implicated, such as how to deal with a pro se opponent; how and when to involve your client in the negotiations; how to deal with the court's expectations.
