In recent firm news, Ken Levinson has joined as a guest on the new podcast, Consult the Negotiator, hosted by attorney Marc Siegel.
“I believe that the power to negotiate effectively, thoughtfully, and strategically is the single most important and distinguishing characteristic of great attorneys and other professionals,” said Siegel. “I launched the Consult the Negotiator Podcast because I was troubled by the fact that this critical skill set inexplicably gets short shrift in both professional education and practice.”
Siegel aims to bring on guest attorneys to discuss leveraging negotiation skills in regards to trademark matters, business discussions, and employment disputes, and will work to provide practical strategies and tips for listeners to become the strongest negotiators possible.
“Lawyers spend every day negotiating to meet and exceed our clients’ goals and expectations,” Siegel explained. “Yet, some lawyers don’t think about the negotiation process itself or how to negotiate differently and more effectively.”
Siegel notes that throughout his years as a practicing attorney, he has taught thousands of lawyers and law students how to best negotiate. He currently provides training in areas like “testing a final offer,” “advocating in mediation,” “getting past impasse,” and “how to deal with a bully.”
Siegel believes that negotiation is a skill and a tool in its own right that can be “honed and refined to improve your overall success in practice.” Levinson’s episode of the podcast is available now on Spotify.
