“My father said: “You must never try to make all the money that’s in a deal. Let the other fellow make some money too, because if you have a reputation for always making all the money, you won’t have many deals.’”
— John Paul Getty, Founder, Getty Oil (Fortune magazine named him the richest living American in 1957)
I have worked many years as a labor-relations lawyer and I am a negotiator, administrator, problem-solver and teacher with a diverse portfolio. With a Harvard Law degree and more than 25 years experience, I can provide the highest quality negotiation, contract and workplace advice and assistance, as well as pre-packaged or tailored training for you or your staff, without the big-firm mark-up. I have taught at Rutgers University and currently teach for the Scheinman Institute at Cornell University. I provide direct services, counsel and advice to organizations small and large, as well as to individuals.
“I can’t speak highly enough of Debra Osofsky’s professional skill and wisdom. She is a great listener, helping me to articulate my needs and interests; she was then able to translate this into necessary language for an employment contract. Thanks to her guidance, advice, and close review of contract documents, I was able to smoothly and efficiently reach an agreement that satisfied all parties.”
