Today’s innovative business leaders want to make sure their companies do well, and do good for everyone they touch. These conscious business leaders often see a big disconnect between maintaining strong relationships with their stakeholders and the tools the legal system gives them to resolve disputes. Conscious Contracts are about closing that disconnect.  – Glenn Meier

Imagine a contract that:

  • Stimulates and supports rapid return to alignment and productivity
    in the face of unexpected change,
  • Inspires side-by-side problem-solving rather than adversarial
    confrontation when parties disagree,
  • Learns with the business as it navigates the ever-changing,
    digital-speed, modern marketplace.

Conscious Contracts take an entirely new approach to negotiating and drafting contracts,
allowing the parties to express their shared vision, mission and values, and giving the parties a
completely new framework for handling disputes, one that allows them to stay aligned with those core principles. These contracts are not weapons to be deployed in a legal battle, they are tools that create space for the parties to come out of conflict together, stronger than before.

 

September 7-9, 2017: Annual conference of the Global Collaborative Law Council, Tampa, FL

Presentation: Conscious Contracts offer a new approach to negotiating & drafting contracts, allowing the parties to express their shared vision, mission & values, & giving the parties a new framework for handling disputes, one that allows them to stay aligned with those core principles. These contracts are not weapons to be deployed in a legal battle, they are tools that create space for the parties to come out of conflict together, stronger than before.

For Civil practitioners looking to expand client base or Family practitioners who want to create a more conscious lawyer-client relationships.
