    How to Succeed as a Trial Lawyer: Negotiating and Mediating Ethically

    If you can avoid it, you would love to settle a case before it's litigated to the end. But there are lots of pitfalls. Do you have clear settlement authority from your client? Do you represent more than one client with somewhat different ideas of what a settlement should look like? What if the other side asks, "What's your client's limit?" Learn how to take advantage of opportunities to negotiate without losing your client or your reputation.

    The successful trial lawyer takes advantage of opportunities to negotiate and mediate cases, achieving a satisfying result for the client at less expense and greater efficiency than litigating to the end of the trial and appeals. Knowing how to do so ethically is an essential skill.

    This program provides ethical guidance on such issues as obtaining your client's settlement authority; representing multiple clients in settlement negotiations (e.g., what if they disagree?); representing an organization in settlement negotiations (e.g., whose authority is binding?); prohibited settlement terms; the limits to your obligation to be truthful in settlement negotiations (e.g., is puffery ethical?); ethical issues in mediation; and remedies for opposing counsel's violation of ethical rules in negotiation and mediation.
