CPR's Mission - Changing the Way the World Resolves Conflict
CPR is the leading independent resource helping global business and their lawyers resolve complex commercial disputes more cost effectively and efficiently.

About CPR:

In 1979, CPR started this legacy by being the first to bring together Corporate Counsel and their firms to find ways to lower the cost of litigation. Since that time, CPR has changed the way the world resolves conflict by being the first to develop an ADR Pledge©. Today, this Pledge obliges over 4,000 operating companies and 1,500 law firms to explore alternative dispute resolution options before pursuing litigation. CPR is once again challenging the way the world resolves conflict by introducing the 21st Century Corporate ADR Pledge©. This new Pledge will systemically change the way global businesses and their leaders resolve complex commercial disputes.  

CPR’s membership comprises an elite group of ADR trailblazers, including executives and legal counsel from the world’s most successful companies and global law firms, government officials, retired judges, highly-experienced neutrals, and leading academics. CPR accomplishes its mission by harnessing the expertise of these leading legal minds to change the way the world resolves conflict for generations to come.
