Guiding and conducting negotiations

Negotiations are something business owners have to deal with on a daily basis. After all, negotiations are the conversations that often precede a contract. An important starting point in negotiations is that they should mainly concern interests, and not positions. Once the interests of both negotiating parties are clear, reaching agreement becomes much more likely. The lawyers at De Haij & Van der Wende can conduct negotiations for a business, but they can also mediate and provide advice.

When it comes to legal issues, negotiation is often the most desirable way to get out of a potential conflict situation. This can include situations concerning the termination of an employment contract, as well as contractual terms and conditions, or about the purchase of real estate. One thing is clear, negotiations are the best way to resolve any wrongdoing. After all, the alternative to a successful negotiation is often legal proceedings, and no business owner wants that.

De Haij & Van der Wende can assist companies, private individuals and governments in negotiations. Our lawyers have the knowledge and experience to conduct negotiations effectively, keeping the results as the objective, in any situation. Nevertheless, should legal proceedings become inevitable, you are in good hands with us.
