A Practical Guide To Settlement Negotiations, From NELA's 2013 Annual Convention
Published by National Employment Lawyers Association




Summary
The decision to settle a case is about balancing how much your client’s case is worth versus the risk of trial. Factors to consider in settlement negotiations that don’t deal with dollars and cents are just as vital, including your client’s individual circumstances, the risk of loss, jurisdiction, the judge, and whether your client can make it through a trial. When do you cut and run? When do you force the issue of settlement early to maximize recovery for your client? Our experts address these and other tactics to help you with your next settlement negotiation.
