Dispute Prevention Committee

Task Force Opportunity: We are convening a Task Force to review and update the CPR Dispute Prevention and Resolution Model Provisions.  The Model Provisions were launched in January 2021, and in light of feedback and experience, we want to re-examine and revise, where appropriate.  The task force should be comprised of a balance of inside counsel, outside counsel, academics and neutrals.  Please contact Carrie Ann Trubenstein if you or a colleague are interested in participating. 

The Dispute Prevention Committee brings together creative transactional lawyers and dispute-oriented counsel to create next and best dispute prevention mechanisms aimed at preserving business relationships by identifying conflict early and preventing it from ripening into full-blown disputes, and driving adoption of a dispute prevention culture across industries. 

To date, the Committee has operationalized these concepts by creating the first-ever Model Dispute Prevention and Resolution Provisions and a Dispute Prevention Pledge for Business Relationships and has assembled a blue-ribbon panel of dispute prevention neutrals.  The Committee also helps break down the silos between transactional attorneys and litigators and supports their role in crafting the right ADR provisions in contract formation. 

The Co-Chairs of this committee are Gregory S. Gallopoulos of General Dynamics Corporation and Noah J. Hanft of AcumenADR LLC.
