New York Int’l Arbitration Center and CPR Sign Collaboration Agreement

Through co-hosted events and cross-promotions, the parties will cooperate to provide ADR resources and to advance international commercial arbitration; CPR members to receive 5% discount on NYIAC hearing facilities

New York – The International Institute for Conflict Prevention and Resolution (CPR), a global non-profit organization that advances dispute prevention and resolution practices and solutions, and The New York International Arbitration Center (NYIAC), a nonprofit organization formed to advance, strengthen and promote the conduct of international arbitration in New York, have announced a strategic, cross-promotional collaboration.

Under the terms of their agreement, the parties will cooperate in the promotion of international commercial arbitration and mediation and shall facilitate, co-organize and co-host lectures, conferences and seminars in these areas, with reciprocal and complimentary registration for members and customers (subject to availability and resources).

CPR will refer requests for hearings and conference space to NYIAC, for which CPR Corporate and Law Firm members shall receive a 5% booking discount.

“NYIAC has solidified New York’s place as a center for global arbitration, where you can not only conduct your hearing but access a wealth of necessary resources, including CPR’s rules and other public resources, to prepare for your proceeding,” said CPR President & CEO, Allen Waxman. “This beautiful space is specifically designed and built with arbitration hearings in mind, providing for the ability to display evidence or provide translations. We are thrilled to be able to offer our law firm and corporate members a special rate for this sophisticated hearing space.”

“We are delighted to memorialize our ongoing collaboration with CPR in this MOU and look forward to greater engagement through joint workshops, lectures, and manuals,” shared Rekha Rangachari, Executive Director of NYIAC. “It’s always a pleasure to work alongside CPR’s dedicated and diverse Committees as we build best practices, guided by CPR’s strong standing within the community and dearth of resources. Together, we also honor and advance the mission of NYIAC’s Founding Chair, former Chief Judge of the New York State Court of Appeals and CPR Board Member, Judith S. Kaye, who deftly gathered thought leaders with a common purpose.”
