RENOWNED NEGOTIATION EXPERT MARTIN E. LATZ TO PRESENT UPCOMING SERIES OF CONTINUING LEGAL EDUCATION SEMINARS

Programs Focus on Negotiating Techniques and Strategies to Assist Litigators and Transactional Attorneys

Nationally renowned negotiation expert Martin E. Latz, Esq. will present three upcoming Continuing Legal Education (CLE) seminars in New York City and Albany in December. Co-sponsored by the New York State Bar Association and the Latz Negotiation Institute, the two half-day programs and one full-day seminar will focus on teaching numerous negotiating techniques and strategies to litigators and transactional attorneys.

The three programs are as follows:

Wednesday, December 8, 2010
9:00 a.m. - 12:35 p.m.
NEGOTIATING STRATEGIES FOR LITIGATORS

You negotiate every day. In fact, your ability to negotiate effectively may be the most critical skill you can possess. Yet most attorneys negotiate instinctively or intuitively.  These seminars have been specifically tailored by Martin Latz to address the negotiation process for litigators or attorneys engaged in transactional practice.  Attending either one of these programs will help you approach negotiations with a strategic mindset.

Whether you are negotiating a settlement or a discovery dispute, or you are in a contract negotiation or helping sell a closely-held company, these seminars will give you the knowledge, skills and power to deal with negotiation issues you encounter every day.

Attendees to these half-day programs will receive a free e-mail subscription to Latz's monthly negotiation column in The Arizona Republic.
