Course Description

In this engaging session, led by Rob Christopher, AV Preeminent rated litigation attorney, General Counsel, and entrepreneur, you will learn when and how you can use an innovative approach to address limited stakes legal disputes in a way that is cost-effective for clients.

The approach, Neutral-Driven (Nonadversarial) Dispute Resolution (NDR) provides attorneys and their clients with an alternative to litigation, arbitration, or mediation for resolving cases in which potential legal and related costs threaten to consume the amount at stake.

Based on his 40+ year career as a successful litigator, businessperson, and now General Counsel, Rob uses thoughtful analysis and real world examples to demonstrate both ethical reasons to consider NDR and long-term practical value to incorporating this approach into your practice.

The program covers what NDR is, how it works, where it comes from, how it differs from arbitration and mediation, and where it fits and doesn?t fit. In the process, Rob gives hands-on demonstrations of assessment tools you can use to determine if NDR makes sense in a particular case. The program concludes with clear takeaways on when and how you can use Neutral-Driven Dispute Resolution for real and lasting wins with your clients.

Rob's entertaining style and innovative and ethical approach to addressing limited stakes disputes make this a must-take session for all client-centric attorneys.
