Arbitration: Arbitration can be conducted pursuant to either CPR Administered Arbitration Rules or CPR Non-Administered Arbitration Rules.
Administered Arbitration - If your arbitration clause provides for CPR Administered Arbitration Rules or if the parties agree to submit an existing dispute to CPR administered arbitration: To file a case, mail or email* your notice of Arbitration along with a $1750 non-refundable deposit to the address below. Please include contact information for all parties, including e-mail addresses. As soon as you file your Notice of Arbitration, CPR will contact you. *If you are not already registered on the HPE Secure mail system and would like to file your matter through our secure email platform, email us and we will email you the link to register.
- You now also have the option to file cases pursuant to the CPR Administered Arbitration Rules for International Disputes with CEDR (Centre for Efficient Dispute Resolution) in London. To file with CEDR click HERE.
Non-Administered Arbitration - If your arbitration clause provides for CPR Non-Administered Arbitration Rules and you need assistance in selecting an arbitrator or a tribunal: Send your request for assistance and Notice of Arbitration as well as, if available, the Statement of Defense, along with a $1,250 non-refundable deposit to the address below. Please include contact information for all parties, including email addresses.
If the parties have provided for CPR Arbitration without specifying either the Non-Administered or Administered Rules, the CPR Administered Rules shall apply to any arbitration agreement dated July 1, 2013 or later. For agreements dated prior to that date the Non-Administered Rules apply unless the parties agree otherwise.
To the extent the same counsel intends to file multiple arbitrations (>5) with CPR against the same respondent(s), claimants filing the arbitrations must also complete the attached excel spreadsheet for each of the arbitrations per the template provided. The template must be filled in EXACTLY in the form requested. Failure to do so will result in the rejection of the filings by CPR. Indigent claimants may be entitled to a fee waiver. California residents requesting a fee waiver, please fill out this form. Others necessitating a fee waiver, please fill out this form. Note: If your income is more than 300% of the federal poverty level, your hardship request will likely not be approved. Send forms together with your filing to CPRNeutrals@cpradr.org. To the extent these claims are employment related, they may be subject to the Employment-Related Mass Claims Protocol. Upon receipt of the template, CPR will notify claimant(s) and respondent whether your cases will proceed individually or under the Protocol. For any questions, please contact CPR.
Please note that to the extent the Protocol is applicable, its provisions regarding filing shall supersede the Rules provisions, and the filing of the spreadsheet together with the Notice(s) of Arbitration shall be deemed the complete filing or filings under the Administered Rules. For the Avoidance of Doubt, the filing of the Notice of Arbitration and Template (without a filing fee) are the complete filing under Rule 3 of the Administered Rules, and the Commencement Date will be the date on which they are both received.
