Negotiation Skills: De-Escalating Conflict

July 6, 2021 from 12-1pm

Mitchell Hamline School of Law- Zoom link provided in confirmation email


From high-profile criminal investigations to managing client expectations and settlement discussions, every attorney must understand and deal with conflict. While disagreements and conflict allow us an opportunity to see issues from a different perspective and create space for growth, unmanaged conflict can cloud our rational decision making, making it easy to lose focus on our goals of the negotiation.

Join Steve Schleicher ‘95 and Molly Tyroler ‘10 for critical examination of the role of conflict in negotiations. Schleicher, a renowned trial attorney and most recently part of the prosecution team at the trial of former police officer Derek Chauvin, and Tyroler, a full time mediator, will dive into real examples of how conflict escalates, its effect on negotiations, and strategies to de-escalate conflict to enhance outcomes.

Presenters Bios:

Molly (Bloom) Tyroler provides mediation and arbitration services primarily to parties of workers’ compensation and personal injury matters. She is dedicated to working collaboratively with parties to resolve complex disputes and settle cases. Molly started her career litigating workers’ compensation cases before shifting to her work as a mediator/arbitrator at the Minnesota Department of Labor and Industry. In 2018, she opened Tyroler Law & Mediation and is so excited to see the ways in which her practice continues to grow. Molly enjoys being a frequent speaker at seminars, conferences, and CLEs and has trained mediators and judges across the country in advanced mediation concepts and strategies.


Steve Schleicher is a renowned trial lawyer with deep experience in high profile cases. He concentrates his work on high stakes criminal and civil litigation, government and internal investigations, and appellate practice—and leads Maslon's Government & Internal Investigations Group.

Steve’s extraordinary trial skills are well known throughout the United States and the world. Most recently, he has been recognized for his role as a Special Prosecutor in the internationally televised homicide trial of former Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin for the murder of George Floyd. Steve received high praise for his prominent role conducting jury selection and witness examination. His devastating cross-examination of the defense use-of-force expert received national acclaim, and his powerful closing was viewed as a pivotal factor in the trial verdict.
