Corporate Counsel
Noting CPR's selection of AT&T and its Senior Executive Vice President and General Counsel, David McAtee II, as the recipients of the upcoming Corporate Leadership Award, Corporate Counsel  recently featured McAtee in its story, "AT&T GC Says Choosing ADR Over Court Has Become 'Overriding Philosophy'."
While stressing that AT&T's legal department "won't hesitate" to fight a matter in court when called for, McAtee explained that this ADR philosophy benefits both the business and customers. He added, "So much of our business is about avoiding friction, getting to the right result with less friction. That's what ADR provides to us."
