About the Presenter

Martin Mederios   

Martin Medeiros

Martin Medeiros started his research in 1999 to remove frustration and stress experienced with deals and disputes. He mastered methods for determining objective probabilities with the best strategies in transactions and disputes needed in the information economy. But this was not enough. His research then turned on tempering this objective focus with human behavior, which can be subjective and irrational. Now the model is complete.

Speaking at start-ups, Fortune 500 companies, Am Law 100 firms, trade association meetings, strategic investment associations, universities, non-profits, and healthcare providers, Martin also presented to hundreds of attorneys as a Board Member of the Oregon Law Institute at Lewis and Clark College of Law from 2003-2015 and as Chair of the Technology Law Section of the Oregon State Bar. Martin's skill as a keynote speaker and teacher were forged on the anvil of this unique experience.

Martin Medeiros takes the stage with stories and humor. Anyone can lose bad negotiation habits, avoid losses and build value - if you know how. Martin has closed thousands of deals and disputes using a systematic approach. While we do have proprietary tools, we also publish our data and teach what we do to increase positive negotiation outcomes.
