Abstract (English):
The role of the in-house counsels in the commercial companies in the development of alternative dispute resolution practices is currently becoming widespread. The author studies the positive experience accumulated by foreign companies. Also, the article examines the trends where the role of in-house counsels is changing to become more than merely supportive, but to the status of a full fledged party in matters of company management through the system of conflict management which is built into the structure of the company’s business development. In view thereof, the author comes to the conclusion that it is desirable to acquaint the in-house counsels with negotiation technologies in dealing with commercial counterparts.
