Dispute Prevention Committee
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.
