CPR and CAMARB Form Pioneering Alliance to Advance the  Use of ADR in Cross-Border Disputes

 
New York, May 20, 2014 – The International Institute for Conflict Prevention and Resolution (CPR) and Câmara de Arbitragem Empresarial Brasil (CAMARB), have entered into a ground breaking agreement to exchange lists of qualified dispute resolution experts. The goal of this first-of-its-kind collaboration for CPR and CAMARB in South America is to share these lists with respective users to leverage and support accredited mediators and/or arbitrators – bilingual in English and Portuguese and capable of handling commercial cross-border disputes – in a concerted effort to further the use of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) in Brazil.

Noah Hanft, CPR’s President & CEO, and Leandro Renno, CAMARB Director, both stress the importance and benefits of this agreement: “This collaborative alliance advances both CPR and CAMARB’s mission to raise awareness of and drive the use of ADR processes internationally. Our users gain a vetted list of qualified dispute resolution experts, as well as direct access to accredited mediators and arbitrators to serve in cross-border matters. This partnership also supports our qualified neutrals by accentuating their significant work in the field.”
