Court Attorneys: Preparation For Negotiations
Preparing for negotiation is, sadly, the most frequently overlooked aspect when a case reaches this case litigation phase. Once the parties of a case have reached this stage, ample preparation on what and how to negotiate is a profitable use of time and is very much worth doing.
Here are the things that court attorneys must prioritize during preparations for negotiation:
1. Having a clear identification of the things the client wants and those that he does not want – The court attorney should have a specific and focused idea of what his or her client wants to get out of a certain deal. He or she must also know the terms that the client does not want to be included in the outcome of the deal.
Keeping in mind the general objectives is good enough. However, being limited on this may also produce general results that would lead to tendencies of resorting to second-guessing the specific terms and culminating with dissatisfaction on both sides.
On the other hand, knowing the clear and specific details of the terms that need to be achieved in the transaction will make for a satisfying result, in the end. rationales and objectives must go to a process of intensive brainstorming to cover all of the necessary details to be included and those that need to be avoided.
2. Having knowledge of what the counterpart wants and does not want – the other party also has particular objectives for the deal. An attorney who accomplishes his or her homework before negotiations makes it a point to know these and note them down. Even if this exercise may prove to be quite tedious, it eventually becomes valuable information.
Oftentimes, being able to know that the client and the other party have common objectives could lead to productive and creative resolutions.
3. Knowing the concessions willing to be given by the client – Every court attorney who is experienced enough in negotiating can clearly identify the things they need to achieve in order to proclaim a bargain with another party as successful. They also know the conditions, terms and extras in the agreement that they could give up and still have a positive outcome.
Agreements always entail concessions on both negotiating parties – a give and take process that makes the bargain an understandable and successful one.
4. Knowing the alternatives – if one of the specific objectives projected for the case is not achieved, a court attorney knows how to come up with alternatives that would still suffice.
5. Know the other parties and the subject to be dealt with – gaining more information about the other party could help a lot before, during and after the negotiations.
6. Rehearsing – it is important to practice in order to achieve a successful negotiation. Learn from expert negotiators and other imminent court attorneys in the same locality.
Court attorneys must not only know the law in a particular state, city or county in order to achieve important solutions in favor of the client's best interests. He or she must also know brilliant strategies in negotiating. Being adequately prepared for each negotiation of a case is necessary.
