2011 CPR Annual Meeting: Highlights and Downloads
CPR held its 2011 Annual Meeting in New York City on January 13-14, 2011.
The recent economic downturn, rising litigation and increased corporate challenges have confirmed that dispute prevention and management are essential elements in every successful business plan. Exploring “Global Problem Solving: New Tools & Solutions,” CPR’s 2011 Annual Meeting examined the opportunities presented by these new economic realities.
Rupert Bondy, Group General Counsel of BP
In private practice as an M&A lawyer, a senior position at GlaxoSmithKline, and experience in U.S. litigation and government investigations gave Mr. Bondy an ideal background to take command of the UK’s largest legal budget at BP in 2008. In light of recent events, Bondy used his keynote address to discuss the challenges faced by general counsel addressing mass claims issues and shared his personal experiences managing this large-scale dispute.
Prof. Bruce Bueno de Mesquita, Author of
The Predictioneer's Game
Recognized as a leading proponent of using game theory to understand and influence policy choices, Bruce Bueno de Mesquita has served as advisor to the U.S. government and corporations regarding forecasting and engineering outcomes in negotiations involving M&A, litigation, regulation, and legislation. In his keynote address, he shared his insights on what the future holds for the legal industry and how to best predict and plan for possible outcomes.
This year’s program was a departure from the typical structure by featuring an interactive workshop on a controversial mass claims issue – an oil spill – led by Deborah Greenspan, former Deputy Special Master for the September 11 Victims’ Compensation Fund Program. Other highlights included legal arguments on Economical Litigation Agreements and Third Party Financing before a “Mock Tribunal” of former judges and an Ethics panel that answered pre-submitted disclosure dilemmas and questions.
