CPR is pleased to continue its collaboration with New York Law School's Alternative Dispute Resolution Program with the James F. Henry Speaker Series. This year's presentation is entitled, No Need to Resolve if You Can Prevent: Tools for Preserving Business Relationships and Avoiding Disputes.

Can you build into commercial relationships mechanisms to identify potential areas of conflict early, and to address them before they ripen into disputes? This program, organized by CPR’s Dispute Prevention Committee, will demonstrate that the answer is yes. The speakers will address how this can be accomplished, and attendees will view scenes from a simulation showing how such provisions can be negotiated and implemented effectively.

The panel includes Steve Bierman of Sidley & Austin, Noah Hanft of AcumenADR, Deborah Hylton of Hylton ADR, and Kimberly Maney of GlaxoSmithKline.

James F. Henry was the founder and longtime President of CPR Institute (International Institute for Conflict Prevention and Resolution), a nonprofit program of several hundred corporations, law firms, government attorneys, and academics, whose mission is to develop alternatives to corporate, government, and international litigation. CPR was responsible for the “Corporate Pledge,” which in the mid-1980s committed more than 4,000 companies to consider alternatives to litigation in disputes with other pledge signers. James F. Henry remains one of the most effective and influential leaders in bringing Alternative Dispute Resolution into the mainstream of American legal practice.
