the conciliation board

The sentencing is binding and it is significantly influenced by the negotiating skills of your representation before the conciliation board. You should choose your representation carefully.

Why you should be aware of the interests of the opposing party

In order to negotiate skillfully, you should thoroughly analyze the interests of the opposing party. Of course you should also exactly know your own interests. Both should be included in your negotiation strategy. If you are aware of the interests of the opposing party, you can offer lesser concessions and thereby gain influence. Furthermore an objective interest-based negotiation offers more profound results than heated and personal debating. This is a strong point of our law firm.

Why the chairman is important to you

The opposing party does not have to agree with the proposition; however they will have to give reasonable grounds for refusal. It can therefore be favorable to propose a person as chairman. The chairman conducts the negotiations and passes sentence in favor of one party if there is discord. We will find a suitable chairman, who is most beneficial to the achievement of your goals.
