CPR's Mission - Changing the Way the World Resolves Conflict

About CPR:
The International Institute for Conflict Prevention & Resolution (CPR) is an independent nonprofit organization that, for more than 35 years, has helped global businesses prevent and resolve commercial disputes effectively and efficiently. Our membership consists of top corporations and law firms, academic and government institutions, and leading mediators and arbitrators around the world. 

CPR is unique as: (1) a thought leader, driving a global dispute resolution culture; (2) a developer of cutting-edge tools and resources, powered by the collective innovation of its membership; and (3) an ADR provider offering innovative, practical arbitration rules, mediation and other dispute resolution procedures, and neutrals worldwide. 

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 calls on more than 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 business and their leaders resolve complex commercial disputes.
