Track: 2. Legal Profession
Discussion session


‘Fight impossible to forgive:’ the outcome of a corporate war depends on the correct placement of punctuation marks. Almost always, the seed of a corporate conflict lies in the latent psychological motives and attitudes of the parties. It is possible to achieve a mutually beneficial conflict settlement by determining these motives and behaviour models of the parties. Only the lawyers, who are able to see what is hidden, can resolve a dispute quite successfully. This is what makes them different from all others.

As part of the session, the leading lawyers in the field of corporate dispute resolution, will discuss with a top psychologist the main psycho-types of participants in corporate wars, tools for influence, and throw the light upon the constructive and destructive behaviours. We all remember: the best battle is the one that never happened.
