What do corporate law leaders say about their companies' membership in the CPR Institute?

I’ve been a litigator for 28 years. I can count on one hand the number of cases that went to trial or to an arbitration hearing, so I am actually in the dispute resolution business -- and ideally in the dispute prevention business as well. CPR membership helps me address those goals in a very innovative and forward-thinking way.             

— Cynthia Randall, Deputy General Counsel, Litigation, Microsoft Corporation

Over the years, CPR helped shape how I and, in turn, the legal department and company, approached commercial disputes. We were very early adopters of the stepped dispute resolution process in our commercial agreements and based much of our ADR tools on CPR’s resources...
CPR has been an invaluable business partner providing us with creative, practical and actionable measures to transform how we approach and manage disputes.
