Debra Osofsky

My Background

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.


”The negotiation strategy, concepts, and techniques training taught by Debra Osofsky while I attended negotiation courses at Cornell University’s Scheinman Institute on Dispute Resolution were second to none (OUTSTANDING). ‬‬‬‬‬

“I am thoroughly impressed with the negotiation strategy and techniques training and how within no time at all, Debra had us understanding (exploring) our personal negotiating style and how to employ your style effectively in various settings and with negotiators of the same and different styles. ‬‬‬‬‬

I strongly recommend Debra Osofsky for your negotiation strategy and techniques, training, needs.” ‬‬‬‬‬
