2013 Annual Meeting
Taking the “A” Out of ADR: Dispute Resolution as a Business Process
CPR held its 2013 Annual Meeting on January 17-19, 2013 at The Lodge at Torrey Pines in San Diego, a five-diamond golf resort located on the Southern California coastline just 20 minutes from the airport.
In this time of global financial crisis, across the country and around the world, courts at all levels are facing unprecedented fiscal and practical constraints that affect their ability to provide access to justice in a timely and sufficient manner. This crisis facing our courts inevitably impacts the ability of companies to resolve their disputes via the courts in a manner that is consistent with the needs of their businesses. The ability to resolve disputes by other means can no longer be merely an “alternative” to litigation. It has become an essential element of business success.
