3 Ways The Maker Group Can Help Legal Negotiators Improve Their Negotiation Strategies

Through our proven strategies, and with the help of our proprietary tools, your negotiators in the legal industry will gain confidence in their negotiation abilities, and build and maintain partnerships, both internally and externally. 

 

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

#1: Prepare for Uncertainty

In many cases, lawyers are unprepared to adapt to the negotiation challenges associated with their client’s industry. 

 

Effective negotiation training is required to prepare negotiators to respond to ultimatums or financial demands. 

 

Lawyers must rethink how they have partnered with companies previously and focus on how they can upgrade their negotiation capabilities to remain at the top of their field. 

 

Preparing for uncertainty is easy with the strategies and proprietary tools provided by The Maker Group. We set lawyers up for negotiation success from start to finish.

#2: Secure Maximum Value for Clients

For lawyers, relationships are critical to successful negotiations. Long-term business relationships are formed through collaborative efforts, but lawyers must understand the value proposition of every deal. 

 

The Maker Group can provide lawyers with the skills and knowledge required to execute multi-sided negotiations with a “win-win-win” outcome in mind.

 

By equipping your team with effective communication strategies, they’ll have the upper hand in any negotiation. From knowing how to actively listen, to effectively articulating their messages, lawyers will confidently negotiate any deal — while protecting their client’s bottom line. 

#3: Forging Contract Agreements

Lawyers have the opportunity to become problem-solvers for their clients. A negotiation only matters if all parties are mutually satisfied and agree to sign on the dotted line.

 

We teach lawyers how to focus on their client’s interests while uncovering and leveraging the hidden value for the opponents.

 

By crafting a negotiation that fosters a win-win outcome, lawyers are far more likely to forge binding contracts quickly and effectively.
