Course Description

This program was recorded on November 24, 2018

This course will cover High-Level techniques for negotiating when the stakes are high and there is always a non-negotiable element. From an author who has resolved extortion of a political figure and kidnapping of a federal agent’s son (with no money changing hands) to hundreds of relationship issues, merger and acquisition cases, and the preparation of witnesses for important trials. This course is not about getting the best deal on a hotel room, this one is based on real-life situations where consequences are severe and there are only minutes available to evaluate your rival. If you deal in high-level cases, this is information you cannot be without. At the very least, this course will double your negotiating ability.

Attorney Steven RiznykSteven Riznyk
Steven Riznyk is a high-level negotiator who runs an immigration and business law/litigation firm based out of San Diego. As a negotiator, he has resolved, inter alia, blackmail/extortion for a high-level political figure, international kidnapping of a federal agent’s son (both with no money changing hands), many relationship issues, and career destruction scenarios for doctors, lawyers, and actors. His natural talent in this area, combined with his education helped him create his own conflict resolution model. This same persuasive ability has enabled him to prevail in a myriad of business litigation and immigration cases that clients were informed were impossible to win.
