Structured Negotiation

Structured Negotiation is an alternative dispute resolution process with a powerful track record. Without lawsuits, the Law Office of Lainey Feingold and others have used the method for twenty years to negotiate comprehensive agreements with some of the largest organizations in the United States.  Bank of America, Major League Baseball and the City and County of San Francisco have all participated in Structured Negotiation. Developed to resolve civil rights claims of blind people, the method has application to a wide variety of civil claims where parties seek collaboration and solution over conflict and expense. Lainey Feingold’s book about this ground-breaking method of resolving legal claims is now available on Amazon and from the American Bar Association.  Read more about Structured Negotiation. On the book page you can read more about the book and find links to interviews, upcoming speaking engagements and reviews.
