Through its academic rigor and real-world experience, CPR has always been able to demonstrate ways in which ADR can work, and as importantly when it won’t. As one of the oldest scholarly organizations solely dedicated to finding and advocating for alternatives to the court system, CPR needs to be that voice.
Over the years, CPR helped shape how I and, in turn, the legal department and company, approached commercial disputes. We were very early adopters of the stepped dispute resolution process in our commercial agreements and based much of our ADR tools on CPR’s resources… CPR has been an invaluable business partner providing us with creative, practical and actionable measures to transform how we approach and manage disputes.
This is just a quick “thank you” note for the terrific work you did to make the 2015 CPR Annual Meeting in San Diego a tremendous success. From my perspective as an attendee, the programs were terrific (as usual), and all of the logistics (meetings, meals, accommodations, etc.) functioned very smoothly indeed. Every detail was anticipated and addressed, and the entire conference was thoroughly enjoyable. Thanks to each of you for all the effort you made to make this another memorable CPR event.
CPR attracts the best and the brightest in the ADR world – so my membership in CPR’s Advisory Council and CPR’s Arbitration Committee has exposed me to cutting-edge thinking about ADR-related issues that I would not otherwise have learned about.
The CPR Annual Meeting is indeed exceptional. Substantively, it provides the most dynamic and engaging panels I have encountered at similar meetings. Further, it provides an unmatched opportunity to exchange knowledge and experiences with counsel, neutrals and others at the forefront of advancing dispute resolution issues.
CPR excels at helping companies like ours find and use the right tools to avoid or resolve disputes in a proactive, strategic way.
The CPR annual meetings are both productive and inspiring. Both Carlos Hernandez (Fluor’s Chief Legal Officer) and I are active members in CPR (Carlos on the Board of Directors, me on the CPR’s Advisory Council), and we have found that the exchange of ideas and views on dispute resolution have been rewarding. The opportunity to meet with many other corporate counsel and officers has been equally rewarding in the creation of relationships throughout the business world – US and International.
CPR’s exceptional resources help global businesses and their lawyers resolve complex commercial disputes efficiently and effectively. My company looks to CPR for the latest in global litigation and ADR developments.
CPR is a special organization. It operates a highly professional nonprofit organization that is making meaningful inroads in changing the culture of corporate America and the way it handles commercial disputes.
Multinational companies like GE Capital, Americas strongly support the use of arbitration, commercial mediation and other methods of conflict management outside the U.S. I have seen first hand how CPR has expanded ADR use across borders and cultures. I am proud to be a part of this ever-growing effort.
CPR is particularly valuable to a company like VISA for a variety of reasons. First, it brings together a lot of stakeholders, from outside counsel to inside counsel, academics and experts in the field to develop a complete set of tools and resources for those of us who are engaged in trying to avoid conflict. If and when conflict does happen, CPR helps you deal with it in the best way possible.
I always look forward to CPR’s meetings and events where I can learn and discuss the newest developments in ADR and dispute management.
