I Agree (free)Effective representation requires a good understanding of the client’s particular business, the general business environment in which the client operates, and the business of the opposing party.  Benjamin Soffer concentrates on understanding the client’s point of view, needs, and expectations.  He asks questions and listens carefully to the answers.  He wants learn what is important to the client; what they are looking for.  In transaction matters, Mr. Soffer wants to put himself in the client’s shoes in order to understand fully what is motivating the client.  This improves his ability to meet their expectations.  But he also works to determine the likely motivations and expectations other parties to the transaction.  Understanding what is truly important to both sides helps him develop a negotiation strategy that is most in tune with client’s financial means, and to formulate creative solutions to impasses.
