Negotiation is the Key

The “N” is Castro CLAN stands for Negotiation and this is our catch all. Law practice is negotiation. Whether you are attempting to conclude an acquisition agreement, trying to settle a personal injury claim, contacting venues to set up a music/artistic tour, or working on any business deal, there is negotiating. All of a Castro CLAN’s legal training and professional expertise is directed toward one objective—solving the client’s problems. Negotiation is our primary tool for doing just that.


Castro CLAN’s ability to negotiate is one of the most important factors to the overall success of our practice. Negotiation is by far the most frequently used device to resolve conflicts and claims our client’s bring to us. Negotiation is the only process available to form and give order to business relationships. Get the advantage in this process by using Castro CLAN’s legal training, experience, and interpersonal skills to achieve the best possible results.


Take a quick look at the following:

  1. Every conceivable type of business relationship is created by negotiation (particularly in all Entertainment).
  2. More than 95 percent of all civil claims are concluded by negotiation, not litigation.
  3. Of those claims that actually go to trial, only a fraction go to verdict, and of those that do, a substantial portion are settled by negotiation pending appeal.


When the Castro CLAN negotiates multimillion-dollar international business agreements, we do not do it with mirrors or sleight of hand. Rather, we employ basic, time-tested principles and concepts of leverage, timing, knowledge, preparation, and determination to achieve results. Instead of searching for magic solutions, Castro CLAN relies on the recurrent patterns (using proprietary technology and knowledge management) with principles of negotiation. It is easier to negotiate any business agreement or settlement during any phase of litigation when you have access to every New York Commercial Division Judge’s or Appellate Court’s position on every issue at your fingertips.


An alternative to litigation for both parties is to seek a negotiated settlement that could be quicker and less expensive. There are no uniform rules of negotiation to ensure fairness, guard against delay, and otherwise guide the negotiation in a predictable, logical manner except those the parties elect to adopt.


For example, if a plaintiff’s lawyer writes a demand letter to the defendant, there is nothing that requires the defendant to comply with that lawyer’s demand. In fact, the defendant need not respond to the letter. If he does choose to respond, there is no time limit within which he must do so. Assuming the defendant does elect to respond, he controls both the substance and form of that response.


When Castro CLAN is in a negotiator position we create, accept, and reject the rules by which a given negotiation will be conducted. Using this fundamental negotiation principle, we can ensure our client’s will enjoy a decided advantage over those who allow their opponents to make the rules.


What Castro CLAN needs to know to conduct a successful negotiation is contained in the answers to these questions:


(1) What is at stake? (2) Who are the parties involved? (3) What does my client want? (4) What limitations does the client have about the way we go about getting what client wants? (5) What is the totality of the circumstances or the facts?


The answers to these questions will obviously vary from client to client dependent on their circumstances. However, these answers provide the information needed to be successful during any Negotiation.
