Victoria Pynchon Joins CPR Panel of Distinguished Neutrals
CPR is shorthand for the The International Institute for Conflict Prevention and Resolution. CPR is a pioneer and leader in dispute resolution, counting among its many attributes and accomplishments the following:
- In February 2004, CPR received the highest satisfaction ratings in ADR performance in a survey of General Counsel and their Deputies by Corporate Legal Times.
- 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 works around the globe, serving as a primary multinational resource for avoidance, management and resolution of business-related and other disputes.
- Most recently, in partnership with The China Council for Promotion of International Trade (CCPIT), CPR established the U.S.-China Business Mediation Center in New York and Beijing.
- CPR is a membership-based, nonprofit alliance of global corporations, law firms, scholars, and public institutions dedicated to the principles of conflict prevention and solution through alternative dispute resolutions.
- CPR's proprietary Panel of esteemed arbitrators and mediators has provided resolutions in thousands of cases, with billions of dollars at issue, worldwide.
- Approximately 4,000 operating companies have subscribed to the CPR Corporate Policy Statement on Alternatives to Litigation© (the corporate "Pledge"), which obligates them to explore the use of ADR in disputes with other signers.
- CPR's wealth of intellectual property and published material has educated and motivated corporate legal departments toward an increased reliance on alternatives to litigation. Much of this material is targeted toward specific industries and practice groups.
I look forward to serving CPR and its membership.
