CPR Institute Changes its Name

The CPR Institute for Dispute Resolution, a nonprofit alliance of the largest global corporations, law firms, scholars, and public institutions has a new name:
International Institute for Conflict Prevention & Resolution But we continue to be your #1 global resource for conflict management.

Thomas J. Stipanowich, CPR’s President and Chief Executive Officer, put it like this:

“For a quarter of a century, CPR has been a central factor in changing the culture of conflict management, an area that is evolving rapidly around the world. We already have taken many important steps towards embracing the challenges of globalization. As we look forward to the next 25 years, we wanted a new name and logo that would most clearly reflect our worldwide capabilities in addition to projecting a more contemporary and sophisticated image. We believe that we have done just that.

International Institute for Conflict Prevention & Resolution will continue to be known colloquially as CPR Institute.

International Institute for Conflict Prevention & Resolution is a pioneer and leader in the area of dispute resolution. In February 2004, CPR received the highest ratings in alternative dispute resolution performance in a survey of General Counsel and their Deputies by CorporateLegal Times. Most recently, CPR in partnership with The China Council for Promotion of International Trade (CCPIT) established the U.S.-China Business Mediation Center in New York and Beijing. CPR promotes excellence and innovation in public and private dispute resolution, and serves as a primary multinational resource for avoidance, management and resolution of business-related and other disputes. CPR’s wealth of intellectual property and published material has educated and motivated America toward an increased reliance on negotiation rather than litigation. CPR’s proprietary Panel of esteemed arbitrators and mediators has provided resolutions in thousands of cases, with billions of dollars at issue, worldwide.
