Created on February 22, 2021





In civil litigation, the number one driver of settlement agreements is the generation of risk, making settlement more attractive to both parties than trial. In this program, full-time litigators Elliot Kolodny and Dave Cohen of Cohen Kolodny Abuse Analytics, LLC will provide real world insights into the best means to resolve your cases through settlement negotiations and by appreciating and utilizing risk.
