Costs of Conflict

Stewart Levine -- an author and consultant in alternative dispute resolution -- wrote about The Many Costs of Conflict in the Dec. 2006 issue of the ABA's Law Practice Management. He leads with the statistic that 20% of senior executives' time in Fortune 500 companies is spent on litigation-related activities. The cost of litigation isn't just the attorneys' fees -- it's also this time, and the severed business relationships, and so on. Food for thought.
