Our own psychology drives decisions and motivations in every aspect of our lives, including business negotiations, work dynamics and litigation. Assuming that solely logical and rational thought drives actions and decisions in any arena can be an extremely costly perspective. It is not infrequent that a closing is derailed or litigation matter fails to settle due to the underlying psychology of one or more of the individuals involved. A strategy that takes into account the psychologies of the people involved offers the best outcome.
Rachel Blakeman’s legal background as well as blend of business expertise and psychoanalytic training uniquely positions her in the growing field of applied psychoanalysis. Arming her clients with a psychological perspective of the players, their motivations and fears is crucial to determining how best to proceed. She provides attorneys, private clients and business entities with strategies and techniques to best manage a particular situation — whether it is a divorce, intra-office dynamics dynamics or a settlement negotiation involving hundreds of millions of dollars, her practice is grounded on the certainty that when there are people involved, understanding what will move them in positive or negative directions is crucial to getting a desired result.
