Negotiation Ethics: Winning Ethically and Effectively

Lawyers negotiate every day and negotiating ethically and maintaining their reputations as ethical and professional is critical to the successful practice of law. In this program, Marty Latz will lead a discussion about a series of ethically challenging legal negotiation scenarios and will link our discussion to critical negotiation strategies. In this way, the participants will begin to more fully appreciate the strategic principles of negotiation while also learning how to effectively maintain their reputations as ethical negotiators.

Participants will learn:

  • How to share strategic information in high-stakes legal negotiations
  • What type of information lawyers must ethically and legally share in various legal negotiation environments
  • How to skillfully and ethically play leverage cards

This program on Feb. 9 has been updated from the program in 2020 “Winning Without Selling Your Soul,” and will include new scenarios and a blue ribbon panel.
