London International Disputes Week

“Stepping back from the brink: turning from dispute to settlement”

The battle lines are drawn and your client’s case is taking on a life of its own. But what if you want to step off the litigation train and try to settle the case? How do you get your client from “litigation mode” to “settlement mode”? What are the psychological factors in play in a negotiation? What are the roadblocks to settlement and how can you overcome them? And how do you encourage your opponent to think positively about settlement possibilities? This session will look at the psychological influences in play, and the tools required, to settle cases.

The webinar will be chaired by Adrian Lifely (Solicitor/Mediator). The speakers are Rebecca Clark (Mediator, IPOS), James Handley (Chartered Psychologist, expert), Karl Mackie (Mediator, CEDR) and Bill Marsh (Mediator, Independent Mediators).

The webinar will take place on 11 May 2021 at 6 pm UK time.
