Solved! Book Discussion with Milton Bordwin

Thursday, November 8, 2018 5:30 PM to 7:00 PM
Boston Bar Association - 16 Beacon Street, Boston, MA


Please join lawyer and author, Milton Bordwin, for a discussion about his book “Solved! How a Business Lawyer solves Clients’ Problem Strategically – with Creativity and Imagination.” Bordwin will share stories about the most exciting, challenging and valuable cases from his 60-year career. Attendees will learn how to apply Bordwin’s signature strategy to contracting, courtroom advocacy, navigating client relationships, negotiations, and solving tough legal problems. The case studies involve nearly 25 industries and cover his general practice, which spanned more than 30 legal specialties. Lawyers and law students can benefit from Bordwin’s insight and practical experience. The event will feature a Q&A portion and the opportunity to buy the book at a substantial discount.    



The program will discuss how Solved! teaches the “how” of law practice, including:

  •  What makes for “good” contracts that serve your clients’ interests and why some contracts fail
  •  The central role of “strategy” and what that word means to business law practice
  •  How to strategically use incentives to shift risk and ensure contract compliance
  • When knowing the law is essential – notes about the Mailbox Rule, Constructive Trusts, the Rule Against Perpetuities, and more.
  • The power of using “conditions” rather than mere “covenants” in contract drafting
  • Interpreting the words in contracts, statutes, and the Constitution to solve your problems
  • When and how to use negotiation to solve tough problems
  • Winning over the hearts and minds of judges and other decision-makers
  • The ethical questions every business lawyer faces – and the cases you don’t take
