SHARPEN YOUR SKILLS

 
 

NEGOTIATING FOR LAWYERS

workshop-negotiating-for-lawyers.jpg

We are constantly negotiating. But we're not always aware of it.

There is no question that negotiation skills are an important part of doing business. In today’s increasingly competitive market, the ability to negotiate effectively is valued more highly than ever before - and the legal business is no different.

Contrary to popular belief, negotiation skills are not about beating the opposition or being a brutal negotiator. In fact, the best negotiators find a way to add value for all parties involved and create win-win solutions.

And even though there are many types of negotiations (and negotiators!), the key elements are always the same. Once you understand the unwritten rules and framework, negotiating will become a lot easier and more effective.

CONTENT MARKETING FOR LAWYERS

Are you one of those lawyers who believe there is a special place in hell for all things marketing related? Guess what: you're not alone!

And yet, there is a growing awareness among lawyers that an online presence has become indispensable for business development in the digital age.

We firmly believe that there is no better way than content marketing to gain momentum in the online (and offline) space. That is - if you know how to use it. 

 

CONTRACT DRAFTING FOR LAWYERS

The ability to properly draft and manage contracts has become a skill that is highly sought-after. A professional skill which is not taught at university, but which is, arguably one of the most important skills to have for any lawyer. Managing a contract is the way to create, negotiate and manage the commercial relationships of your clients.

Many lawyers have learned to draft contracts by editing and updating already existing precedent documents or third party contracts. However, this learning method can result in sub-par drafting that leads to legal risks and  unhappy clients.

This workshop  will teach you how to make sure your contracts do the job they were intended to do. Contracts which translate your clients needs and cover their legal risks. Contracts which are consistent, legible and tailored to the business of your client. This practical course is aimed at any lawyer who wants to become a star at drafting, amending and updating all kinds of contracts.

Once you have mastered the technique, you can use the elevator pitch anywhere.  Far from being a sleazy sales talk, the elevator pitch is all about effective communication. Start (net)working like a boss and get your value proposition heard.
