Antitrust

In 1989, CPR convened an Antitrust Advisory Committee, comprising leading antitrust experts drawn from the corporate, defense and plaintiffs' bars. The purpose of the Committee was to produce a responsible document that would draw the attention of the antitrust bar to opportunities for ADR in the field of private antitrust disputes. The aim was to encourage consensual resolution of those disputes without court involvement. The 1989 report surveyed common types of private antitrust disputes and some of the ADR tools that may be applicable to them, including Mini-Trial and Neutral Expert Fact-Finding. It drew conclusions with respect to the ADR prospects in various types of private antitrust cases, and included a bibliography of relevant materials. That bibliography and selected case citations were updated in 1998.
