Banking and Financial Services
The Banking and Financial Services Committee meets periodically to develop and consider innovative approaches to resolving disputes among financial institutions.
It has sponsored presentations on Bi-lateral Investment Treaties, the “mediation window,” the Economical Litigation Agreement, ADR in bankruptcy cases, as well as on the subprime market and the role of ADR in private party litigation involving hedge funds. At the request of the Committee, CPR has developed a Panel of Distinguished Neutrals specialized in resolving complex disputes arising between banking, accounting and financial services institutions. Included on this Panel are attorneys with extensive financial background and expertise in resolving disputes which arise in the context of real estate, accounting, mergers & acquisitions, hedge funds and other types of corporate deals.
The Chair of this committee is Deborah Reperowitz of Stradley Ronon Stevens & Young LLP. The Secretary of this committee is Hannah Sholl of Visa Inc.
