Getting to Yes and Beyond: Best Practices in Settling Employment Claims

Co-sponsored by the ACBA Labor and Employment and ADR Sections

Experienced plaintiff-side and defense counsel will discuss the practical aspects of settling employment claims from the initial demand letter through final settlement. They will discuss best and worst practices in drafting and responding to demands, discussions between counsel, informal settlement resolution, and mediation. 

Following the panel discussion, attendees are invited to stay for a roundtable discussion about settlement and negotiation strategies and networking with your fellow ACBA members. Soft drinks, wine and snacks provided.
