The Importance of Negotiation Consulting for Lawyers

Negotiations are a part of daily life for lawyers, but that doesn’t mean all lawyers know how to negotiate successfully.


Unfortunately, millions of dollars are left on the negotiating tables of law offices across the country every year. 


Law firms must create a negotiation culture that improves financial outcomes and mitigates reputational risks. 


At The Maker Group, we empower lawyers to strengthen key relationships, create value, and deliver profitable results with every negotiation.

3 Ways The Maker Group Can Help Law Firms Improve Negotiation Strategy and Effectiveness

Using proven strategies, we’ll guide you through the process of instilling confidence in your legal team by equipping them with the skills and knowledge every negotiator should have. 


For those in the legal sector, The Maker Group’s negotiation experts can help in the following ways. 

#1: Prepare for Uncertainty

Lawyers often find themselves unprepared to adapt to the challenges of their client’s industry, which can make negotiations difficult even at the basic level.


Effective negotiation ensures that all parties leave a deal feeling satisfied with the outcome — but this is not possible if negotiators are unprepared for potential industry nuances.


Our consulting strategies are backed by our proven 8-Step Maker Framework and a methodology that equips lawyers with clear direction for every negotiation.

#2: Secure Maximum Value for Clients

For lawyers, relationships are a critical component of a successful negotiation. Lasting business relationships are formed through collaboration, but it’s up to lawyers to uncover the value proposition of every deal. 


The Maker Group can provide your firm with the knowledge required to execute multi-sided negotiations that prioritize a “win-win-win” outcome.


When you equip your legal team with effective communication strategies, you’re giving them an advantage over the competition. From actively listening to articulating their client’s needs and wants, your legal team will have the confidence to execute any negotiation, all while protecting your client’s bottom line. 

#3: Forging Contract Agreements

Lawyers are problem-solvers for their clients, but negotiations only work if all parties involved are mutually satisfied. Without agreement from all parties, forging a contract becomes near impossible.


Lawyers must have the ability to protect their client’s interests while identifying and leveraging the compromises that bring value to the other side of the deal.


Crafting negotiations that foster a win-win outcome is critical to successfully forging binding contracts.
