Neutral Administrative Fees

Since 2007, CPR has charged our neutrals an annual administrative fee to help cover the costs of maintaining our neutral bios on the website and to enable us to continue to improve neutral information available to our members. Panelists are either billed for this fee in September or April depending on when they joined the Panels. As a non-profit dedicated to promoting conflict resolution, we are focused on providing our members with an exclusive and streamlined process to access the most objective information. This, in turn, enables them to make an informed decision when selecting neutrals for their cases. Our neutral selection and vetting process is, quite simply, the most comprehensive in the field.

As a result, our credentialing designates CPR’s neutrals as the most qualified in their respective area. In addition, our exclusive “Members Only” access to panelists’ information means that our neutrals are being considered by the most astute buyers of ADR services who are actively in the process of selecting neutrals. Our elite membership comprises influential industry leaders who handle the largest and most sophisticated matters and command the highest litigation dollars. They are the top General Counsel and senior lawyers of Fortune 1,000 organizations and senior partners in the top law firms around the world. In a recent survey, our members identified our Panels as one of CPR’s most valuable offerings and confirmed that more than half regularly access and engage our panelists.

We are continually working to enhance our panels. We have introduced new specialized panels and modified the website to allow for a more comprehensive and refined search. All of these functions have helped to enhance member access to CPR’s distinguished neutrals. 

The following neutral administrative fees apply:

Base fee for Your Biography to Appear on One Panel on the Website $395
Each Additional Panel, per Panel, Up to Three $100
Each Additional Panel, per Panel, on Four to Six Panels $80
Each Panel, per Panel, on Seven or More Panels $60

If a CPR Panelist receives no cases in a given year, $95 will be refunded the following year. 

If a CPR Panelist receives a case, he/she will remit an additional fee of no more than 5% of the total fees charged and 3% of cancellation fees.
