Before It All Goes South: Effective Strategies for Dispute Resolution in Contract Negotiations… And Avoiding the Courtroom
Presented by National Association of Women Lawyers (NAWL)
About the Event
Assessing risks and planning for potential conflict resolution is par for the course in negotiating transactions. This joint webinar sponsored by the Women in Litigation and Women in Corporate Transactions Practice Area Affinity Groups will provide helpful insights, tips, and practical advice from our speakers. This presentation is focused on strategic and real world-based considerations that we can all factor into our next negotiation. We will explore effective measures between the parties to avoid dispute resolution or litigation, including creative exits, and examine the impact of drafting choices if litigation is unavoidable. We will also discuss new options such as “Guided Choice” and “Facilitated Deal Mediation” as well as the implications of new rules impacting cross-border dispute resolution. Join us for this informative and engaging discussion.
