[edit] Description

CPR Institute is a nonprofit organization based in New York City. Its mission is to spearhead innovation and promote excellence in public and private dispute resolution, and to serve as a primary multinational resource for avoidance, management and resolution of business-related and other disputes.

To fulfill its mission, CPR is engaged in an integrated agenda of research and development, education and advocacy. CRP is also the leading proponent of self-administered ADR and serves as an appointing authority for parties in need of neutrals.

CPR was founded in 1979 as the Center for Public Resources from a coalition of leading General Counsel dedicated to identifying and applying appropriate alternative solutions to disputes thereby mitigating the extraordinary costs of lengthy court trials. That determination is still at the heart of CPR’s activities today.

CPR is pioneer and leader in the area of dispute resolution. CPR was the first organization to bring together Corporate Counsel and their law firms to find ways of mitigating the extraordinary costs and delays of litigation, while achieving more satisfying and lasting results through appropriate alternatives, like negotiation, mediation, and arbitration.

CPR believes that the culture and practice of the way in which businesses settle disputes, nationally and internationally, needs vast revision in order to untie the bonds of lengthy and excruciatingly expensive litigation.

CPR believes that every effort to promote the appropriate use of mediation, arbitration, and other strategies must continue to be explored and used. And, their members believe that CPR has an unparalleled role in exacting these changes.

CPR fulfills its mission by:

  • Convening high-level meetings between General Counsel, Deputy General Counsel, Senior Partners, and Managing Partners at members-only meetings and programs, as well as through the efforts of its member committees and task forces.
  • Providing up-to-the-minute research information and case law in its other printed publications, online materials, and CPR in-person or electronic counseling on ADR procedures and drafting.
  • Resolving disputes via our Panels of Distinguished Neutrals, its non-administered procedures, and its unparalleled ability to get parties to the table.

[edit] Dispute Resolution Services

  • Selecting a Neutral: As an independent, objective organization, CPR is better positioned to provide parties with highly skilled Neutrals possessing both the experience and qualifications relevant to a specific conflict.
  • Providing Assisted Arbitration Services: For situations in which limited administration may be needed for a given type of case or case load, CPR staff stands ready to assist parties in proactively addressing disputes and accelerating resolution.
  • Formulating an ADR Agreement: As the leading innovator in ADR solutions, CPR can often assist parties in designing the terms of a post-dispute ADR agreement or pre-dispute ADR contract clause in ways that increase their effectiveness and expedite the process better than if the parties had crafted the solution on their own.
  • Designing Corporate ADR Systems and Industry ADR Programs: CPR can assist companies and industry groups to craft an ADR program for frequently occurring disputes, to identify and train a panel of highly qualified Neutrals, and to communicate the program to relevant parties.
  • Coalescing and Convening Parties in Complex Multiparty Disputes: In multiparty actions, CPR will, at the request of any party, undertake to bring together the parties and Neutral(s). Because of its sponsorship and oversight of the CPR Pledge Program, CPR can leverage this special role to convene multi-party disputes and obtain their consent to engage in an appropriate ADR process to resolve the matter.
