Government and ADR Task Force
Chair: Pete Swanson, Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service
The purpose of the CPR Government & ADR Task Force is to educate companies, law firms and government agencies (and their individual attorneys) on the use of Administrative Dispute Resolution (ADR) in both the federal, public and private sector in light of these laws and the specific requirements for engaging in ADR with target government agencies.
The Task Force will encourage the increasing use of ADR in private-public disputes as well as the development of new ADR solutions for these disputes. And, as an information clearinghouse, the Task Force will bridge the gap between government and business by facilitating mutual sharing of ADR best practices. The Government & ADR Task Force comprises leading practitioners, corporate counsel, neutrals, academics and current and former federal government employees, including ADR specialists and dispute resolution directors.
