Gain the Edge! Negotiation Strategies for Lawyers and Business Professionals, with Marty Latz
Thursday, Dec. 1, 9 a.m.-12:30 p.m.
Oregon Convention Center, Portland
3.5 general CLE credits

You negotiate every day. In fact, your ability to effectively negotiate may be the most critical skill you possess. Yet most people negotiate instinctively or intuitively. This seminar will help you approach negotiations with a strategic mindset. And make no mistake—no matter how much you’ve negotiated, you can still learn. Adding that one new tactic may be the difference between winning and walking away empty-handed.

Negotiation Ethics: Winning Without Selling Your Soul, with Marty Latz
Thursday, Dec. 1, 1:30-4:30 p.m.
Oregon Convention Center, Portland
3 ethics credits

In real estate, it’s location, location, location. In negotiation, it’s reputation, reputation, reputation. A trustworthy reputation — once lost — can be difficult, if not impossible, to regain. In this seminar, Martin E. Latz plays Devil’s Advocate in presenting a series of ethically challenging negotiation scenarios to a blue ribbon panel of Oregon practitioners. Watch the sparks fly as they: discuss effective — and ethical — negotiation strategies; evaluate where to draw the line between lying and puffery; and share their secrets of successful negotiation.
