CPR is committed to expanding ADR use across borders and cultures. Our work includes advocacy and educational activities designed to increase understanding and efficient use of dispute resolution worldwide.
To achieve this, CPR collaborates with institutions, companies, and law firms around the world to develop programs specifically tailored to needs in those regions.
In addition, as part of its Public Policy CPR International Project, CPR provides resources to delegations around the world that are seeking to learn more about dispute resolution and, when requested, hosts delegations for information sharing sessions at its offices in New York City.
CPR is on the cutting edge of best practices and thought leadership in the areas of resolution, management and avoidance of business disputes. The EAB serves to bring that leadership to Europe and to bring the views and experience of some of Europe’s leading dispute resolvers, managers and avoiders to CPR. For me, participating in this mutual exchange has been an illuminating and satisfying way to understand and hopefully mould the world of international disputes, and to get to know better some of the key players of today and tomorrow in this area.

Many organizations focus on a specific method of resolving disputes, such as arbitration or mediation. CPR takes a holistic approach and is interested in the effective resolution of business disputes, whatever pathway is needed to get there. With that objective in mind, they scan broadly to identify and understand trends, strategies, tools and emerging technologies. CPR also balances international and local perspectives; they are attuned to different cultural approaches to dispute resolution. This broad, flexible lens is important to those of us working in Europe’s diverse legal landscape. I value the opportunity to look at the bigger picture.

Through an active and diverse local board, CPR has been driving the way the Brazilian legal community perceives and embraces alternative mechanisms to resolve business disputes. In a jurisdiction such as Brazil, with significant levels of litigation, this is not a small achievement. The CPR Brazil Advisory Board brings just the right balance between CPR’s global reach and experience and Brazil’s unique features as a developing economy.
