When I took the helm of CPR seven years ago, my goal was to discover new and better ways to improve private dispute resolution for the business culture and to change the way the legal profession approaches conflict resolution. These “goals” can never be achieved, however, as it is about the journey and not a single destination. CPR is the only institution in the world with this aspirational mission, and it has been an incredible journey, indeed.
Our Y-ADR group for younger attorneys has held events nationwide and in Europe introducing CPR’s exciting initiatives to the next generation of ADR leaders. Our new “Diversity Commitment” leads the way to increasing diversity in ADR. Our Online Dispute Resolution (ODR) platform is now being piloted and will soon be open for business with the potential to create more cost effective options for businesses. CPR clearly has led the way! CPR’s future is bright. With strong leadership from our Board of Directors, a highly skilled and dedicated staff, and all the contributions from our members, CPR will continue to lead and inspire. It has been a pleasure to be a part of this growth, and I look forward to watching CPR enter its next stage from the Cape. Sincerely,
CPR is now positioned for amazing growth and even more significant impact. Just this past year, we int rod uced t he 21s t C ent ur y Pledg e, new

ENGINEERING the FUTURE
INTERNATIONAL INITIATIVES: ENGINEERING THE GLOBAL FUTURE OF ADR
CPR has significantly increased its international efforts with the assistance, guidance and support of its global members. CPR’s initiatives include advocacy, networking and educational opportunities to promote ADR worldwide. As part of CPR’s five year strategic plan, the Board of Directors has decided to focus its international initiatives in Brazil, Europe and Asia in an effort to promote the use of ADR and to enhance CPR’s Global Panel of Distinguished Neutrals in these countries.
“CPR’s exceptional resources help global businesses and their lawyers resolve complex commercial disputes efficiently and effectively. My company looks to CPR for the latest in global litigation and ADR developments.” John Schultz Executive Vice President & General Counsel Hewlett-Packard Company 6
BRAZIL The goal of CPR’s Brazil Initiative is to promote the use of mediation as an acceptable method for resolving business disputes and to develop a skilled cadre of mediators in Brazil. CPR has been actively promoting this initiative for the past three years and has made significant progress in FY13 toward achieving these goals. During FY13, CPR was involved in a series of meaningful ac tivities that significantly expanded CPR’s Panel of Neutrals and furthered the acceptance of mediation practices. The first Business Mediation Congress in Brazil was held in Rio de Janeiro in April of 2013. The event, which was sponsored by numerous Brazilian and multinational entities including Royal Dutch Shell plc, Fluor Corporation, Danaher, Swiss Re and AmBev, was attended by over 150 attendees. As a result of this success, a mediator training, jointly sponsored by CPR and CAMARB, was held from November 1517, 2013 in São Paulo and a Second Business Mediation Congress is scheduled to take place in Belo Horizonte in April 2014. CPR is now a member of the Brazilian American Chamber of Commerce and the Brazilian Arbitration Committee, and has formed relationships with the US-Brazil Business Council and the Florida-Brazil
Chamber of Commerce. In addition, CPR has also worked with CONIMA, a Brazilian notfor-profit organization that functions as an umbrella organization for chambers of mediation and arbitration and has worked with several leading universities in Brazil. CPR is also participating in a study of mediation expected to be coordinated by professors from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, PRORAD (a company set up by American Marc Burbridge) and the Fundação Getúlio Vargas. Like the CPR / Cornell 1997 study, this research will seek to establish a baseline of ADR use by Brazilian corporations and identify areas of potential growth.

EUROPE CPR’s European presence dates from the early 1990s, when a group of corporate and legal leaders from Europe was convened to form the CPR European Advisory Committee. Under the leadership of Hans Peter Frick, former General Counsel of Nestlé, the group organized the First European Congress on ADR in 2004, followed by four annual conferences around Europe.

CPR’s efforts have continued to grow over the years and in FY13, CPR successfully launched the European Executive Board (EEB), whose members include the following corporations: DuPont, GlaxoSmithKline, Shell Group, Fluor Corporation, Siemens AG, France Telecom, E.ON Energy, Capgemini, Koc Holdings and law firms: Herbert Smith Freehills, Gide Loyret te Nouel, and B-Cremades & Associates. The EEB is chaired by Jean-Claude Najar of Curtis, Mallet-Prevost, Colt & Mosle LLP, and CoChaired by Maurice J. H. Kuitems of Fluor Corporation. The EEB provides strategic direction to CPR’s activities in the region. The first meeting of the full EEB was held in the Paris headquarters of Capgemini on September 19, 2013. CPR has also activated its European Action Committee (EAC). This group, comprised of European corporate and law firm members, was created to work in collaboration with the EEB to launch dispute prevention and resolution initiatives of interest to the European market. In October of 2013 a Y-ADR event took place in Paris, France and upcoming events are scheduled to take place in Geneva, Switzerland, Germany and London.
AM 13: Honorable Suzanne H. Segal (U.S. District Court (California, Central District))
ASIA-PACIFIC REGION CPR’s work in this region is designed to promote mediation and to identify specific individuals to invite onto CPR’s Asia-Pacific Advisory Council. In FY13, CPR has been actively involved in establishing and deepening working relationships with the organizations that will benefit CPR members engaged in dispute resolution activities in the region. Through contacts made at meetings of the UNCITRAL Commission and Working Group III, and with the ABA Dispute Resolution Section, CPR has arranged a series of meetings with governmental representatives and experts in dispute resolution throughout Asia. During November of 2013, CPR traveled to Seoul, South Korea; Singapore, Hong Kong; Ha Noi, Vietnam; and Bangkok, Thailand and met with representatives of NGOs and governmental organizations in those countries. CPR also met with representatives of organizations in Indonesia, Cambodia, India, Mongolia, Sri Lanka, Philippines, and Malaysia.
CROSS BORDER ONLINE DISPUTE RESOLUTION (ODR) ODR is widely recognized as the next evolution of ADR. In September of 2011, CPR was added to the U.S. Delegation to the UNCITRAL Working Group III to develop rules and procedures for an ODR platform for cross-border / e-commerce transactions. As part of this process, CPR participates in week-long sessions of the UNCITRAL Working Group III at the United Nations to develop key principles governing ODR’s use. In FY13, in addition to the formal session during the week of May 20, 2013, CPR was also a member of the U.S. Delegation invited by the government of the Slovak Republic to participate in informal meetings with
Delegations from South Korea, Columbia, Israel, Japan, Singapore and Spain. CPR also joined the U.S. Department of State in its informal discussions regarding ODR issues with the European Commission in Brussels. The objective of both the formal and informal sessions is to develop a globally respected method of implementing ODR and a uniform approach to basic standards. CPR is also working closely with Modria, an ODR platform developer run by Colin Rule, the first Director of ODR for eBay and PayPal. Together, CPR and Modria have developed a flexible online business-to-business arbitration process with CPR-ODR arbitration rules written to facilitate the process. CPR’s ODR platform is now being piloted and will soon be open for business with the potential to create more cost-effective options for businesses.
“Multinational companies like GE Capital, Americas strongly support the use of arbitration, commercial mediation and other methods of conflict management outside the U.S. As the Chair of CPR’s International Committee, I have seen first hand how CPR has expanded ADR use across borders and cultures.

ENGINEERING the FUTURE
DISPUTE RESOLUTION SERVICES (DRS): ENGINEERING THE RESOLUTION OF CONFLICT
According to a recent study of tort cases by the National Center for State Courts (NCSC), “A case that settles after discovery and is complete through formal settlement negotiations or ADR will range from $5,000 to $36,000 in attorney fees. If the case goes to trial, the total costs including expert witness fees can range from $18,000 to $109,000 per side.” This study shows that cases that go to trial cost roughly three times as much as those that are resolved through settlement negotiations or ADR.
“CPR’s Panels of Distinguished Neutrals, comprising former judges, prominent attorneys and academics, are uniquely qualified to resolve worldwide complex business disputes in more than 20 specialized practice areas. CPR provides access to an elite roster of neutrals that are highly credentialed by CPR, both internally and by peer review committees, in order to ensure that they possess superior qualifications in their fields. These neutrals have extensive experience in resolving thousands of complex cases and the CPR model clauses and rules are the best in the industry.” Thomas Sager Senior Vice President & General Counsel DuPont 10
With litigation costing companies billions of dollars each year, ef fec tive conf lic t management is essential to reduce costs, increase privacy, lower litigation risks and improve business relationships. Mediation, arbitration and other consensual dispute resolution methods offer a low-cost, highreturn option for corporations and their outside counsel. CPR’s rules and clauses offer a proprietary self-administered and an administered process that empowers parties to expedite conflict resolution, control the process, and minimize costs.
PANELS OF DISTINGUISHED NEUTRALS CPR members have unlimited access to a highly qualified panel of more than 600 Distinguished Neutrals, both in the United States and abroad. These neutrals are highly credentialed by CPR, both internally and by peer review committees, to guarantee that they possess superior qualifications in their fields. CPR has more than 20 industryspecific panels and its Global Panel of Distinguished Neutrals consists of nearly 100 panelists across 21 countries. As part of its five year strategic plan, significant progress has been made to
enhance CPR’s Panels of Distinguished Neutrals by developing additional services, credentialing tools and creating greater community among CPR’s panelists. CPR’s focus continues to be on augmenting the Global Panel. CPR continues to add to our European Panel with neutral exchange agreements with the Paris-based Centre de Médiation et d’Arbitrage de Paris (CMAP) and the Milan Chamber of Arbitration (CAM) and with our work in Brazil and Asia.
CPR’S CLAUSES AND RULES For over 30 years, CPR has been the leading proponent of self-administered processes and has recently developed an innovative administered process that gives parties the assistance they need and no more. These processes are effectuated in CPR’s rules and clauses and are easily adaptable. They allow parties to constructively and efficiently arrive at an enforceable result, while significantly controlling risks and expenditures of time and money. CPR also offers specialty rules in several areas including patent and trade secret, reinsurance and construction.

In response to users’ requests, CPR is now offering Administered Arbitration Rules for those requiring an administering authority. CPR’s Administered Arbitration Rules were drafted by users for users and offer the greatest degree of flexibility and control available, while minimizing overall costs. The new rules represent another option in the ADR toolbox for highly complex legal dispute cases. The Rules, which became effective on July 1, 2013, enable parties to remain in control to the greatest extent possible by providing only those administrative functions needed by the par ties. They are designed to streamline the efficient resolution of disputes and, as a result, they are flexible and cost effective. CPR’s Administered Arbitration Rules were draf ted by a Subcommit tee of CPR’s Arbitration Committee, Chaired by Robert Smit, Partner at Simpson Thacher & Bartlett, and comprised of leading corporate counsel, lawyers, academics and neutrals seeking to improve the quality of arbitration. The rules are substantially the same as CPR’s n o n -ad mini s te re d r ule s exc e pt fo r modifications related to CPR’s administrative
role, which includes billing, selection of the arbitrator(s), ensuring the smooth interface between parties and Arbitrator / Tribunal, review of awards, and oversight to ensure the process occurs in a timely manner. CPR’s Rules are designed to increase efficiency and quality and to lower costs in the following unique ways:
DESIGNED TO INCREASE EFFICIENCY • T ime Frame Accountability – CPR must approve any time frame beyond the benchmarks. • S ettlement Opportunities Highlighted – Tribunal authorized to suggest mediation / settlement at any stage, and not just limited to parties’ initiative. • E asy Commencement Process – No cumbersome paper filing requirements.
DESIGNED TO INCREASE QUALITY • Independent and Neutral Arbitrators – No exceptions. • A pplication of Law – Explicit rule that “Tribunal shall apply the substantive law(s) or rules of law designated by the parties as applicable to dispute.” • Innovative “Screened” Selection Process Available – Arbitrators can be selected without knowing which party made the
selec tion to enhance neutralit y and independence. • Broad Confidentiality Default Provisions – Applies to parties, arbitrators and CPR and not just arbitrators and ADR provider. • I ndependent Challenge Review Panel – Independent panel of prac titioners available to decide arbitrator challenges.
DESIGNED TO LOWER COSTS • Single Fixed Filing Fee – No separate filing fee for counterclaims. • Fixed Fee Scale – Scale of flat fees based on amounts in disputes provides for more predictable and lower fees for higherstakes disputes. • A dministrative Costs are Capped – For disputes above $500 million, capped administrative fees at $34,000, absent special circumstances. • A dvances Earn Interest – Unexpended advances on arbitrators’ fees and expenses returned with earned interest.
DISPUTE RESOLUTION SERVICES CPR offers a number of consultative services related to the prevention and resolution of
disputes. These include resources for crafting internal ADR systems, drafting predispute ADR clauses and post-dispute ADR agreements. CPR also provides skilled attorneys who can assist in determining the proper selection criteria and can compile a list of candidates to meet parties’ specific needs. For the period from July 1, 2012 to June 30, 2013, CPR assisted parties with the selection of neutrals in a wide variety of case matters as shown below: CPR Dispute Resolution Services Cases by Subject Matter 07/01/12 to 06/30/13

ENGINEERING the FUTURE
PROGRAM COMMITTEES: ENGINEERING ADR’S INTELLECTUAL CAPITAL
One of CPR’s greatest strengths is the work produced by its industry committees, councils and task forces. CPR’s industry-specific committees analyze ADR challenges, recommend best global practices and publish materials on issues at the forefront of legal debate. The balanced interests of these committees provide a unique platform for analyzing the latest developments, both legal and practical, in all manners of dispute resolution. Committees meet regularly to draft rules and propose industry protocols used around the world.
“As a Co-Chair of CPR’s Banking & Financial Services Committee, I have seen how very valuable the process is. By engaging highly skilled practitioners in committee work, CPR provides a platform for members to study current issues and make recommendations for best practices that often result in published materials. These insights aid counsel in finding innovative, cutting edge ways to resolve disputes worldwide.” Andrew J. Olejnik Attorney Jenner & Block LLP Co-Chair, CPR Banking & Financial Services Committee 14
CPR believes that the ADR field can best be advanced by exploring and analyzing the latest developments in commercial conflict management and dispute resolution. We invite our members, academics and neutrals to actively participate in industry and practice specific committees to study current issues and make recommendations for best practices that often result in published materials.
ARBITRATION COMMITTEE The Arbitration Committee is a resource for corporate counsel, lawyers, academics and practitioners seeking rigorous analysis of issues related to improving the quality of domestic and international arbitration. On July 1, 2012, Ank Santens, of White & Case LLP, became the new Committee Chair. The Administered Arbitration Rules Subcommittee, under the leadership of Robert Smit of Simpson, Thacher & Bartlett LLP, released its final version of CPRâ€™s Administered Arbitration Rules. The Subcommittee has been actively involved in the public release of the Administered Arbitration Rules.
BANKING AND FINANCIAL SERVICES COMMITTEE
EMPLOYMENT DISPUTES COMMITTEE
The Banking and Financial Ser vices Committee meets periodically to consider possibilities for ADR to resolve disputes among financial institutions. The Committee is currently Chaired by Pamela Corrie of GE Capital, Americas and Andrew J. Olejnik of Jenner & Block LLP. CPR regularly convenes this commit tee of in-house counsel, attorneys, and leading ADR practitioners to analyze, establish benchmarks and publish material on issues that are critically important to business practices. The Committee met three times in FY13. At these meetings, corporate users were invited to share information and best practices on their use of mediation in the banking and financial services industry. In addition, the Committee explored trends in the use of ADR in the bankruptcy context and continued to work on the inclusion of a CPR Model Arbitration Clause as an option for the ISDA Master Agreement. The Commit tee has also developed a Panel of Distinguished Neutrals specialized in municipal bankruptcy.
The Employment Disputes Committee is Chaired by Jay Waks of Kaye Scholer LLP. It includ e s cor por ate re pre sent ative s, arbitrators, management lawyers, employee representatives, former judges, human resources professionals, mediators and academics who are interested in improving the management and resolution of employment disputes. The Committee often invites prominent guest speakers to address current developments in such areas as mediation of ADA claims, waiver of statutory claims, use of ADR by state and federal enforcement agencies, and the enforceability of mandator y and binding arbitration policies. The Compendium Subcommittee, Chaired by Nanc y Vanderlip of HID Global Corporation, has been meeting monthly and is in the editing stages of its new work Cutting-Edge Advances in Workplace Conflict Resolution. The book, which is expected to be available at CPRâ€™s Annual Meeting in February 2014, includes articles from renowned experts, such as David Lipsky, Direc tor of the
Scheinman Institute on Conflict Resolution at Cornell University, ILR School; and Mary Rowe, Special Assistant to the President, then Ombudsperson and Adjunct Professor of Negotiation and Conflict Management at MIT.
ENERGY, OIL & GAS COMMITTEE The Committee on Energy, Oil & Gas is Chaired by Duncan MacKay of Northeast Utilities. It was formed in 2000 to study challenges facing these related industries. It has assembled an international blue-ribbon panel of energy neutrals in sub-specialties ranging from alternative energy sources to nuclear specialties and continues to work on augmenting CPR’s Energy, Oil & Gas Panel of Neutrals as well as the presentation of periodic programs of interest to the field.
FRANCHISE MEDIATION PROGRAM CPR administers the Franchise Mediation Program whose goal is to encourage the
mediation of non-judicial management of disputes arising between franchisors and franchisees and to encourage all members of the franchise community to resolve conflicts fairly, amicably and cost-effectively.
INSURANCE COMMITTEE AND DIRECTORS AND OFFICERS (D&O) GROUP T he Insur ance Commit tee includ e s representatives of property casual insurance companies who monitor the activities of the Mass Claims Commission and other CPR initiatives that have implications for the insurance industry. The Insurance Committee has formed a new Directors and Officers (D&O) Liability Group to explore ways to incorporate the use of mediation, arbitration and other ADR processes into the resolution of D&O matters. The Chair of the newly formed Directors and Officers’ Group is Timothy W. Burns of Perkins Coie LLP. The Group is working on arbitration procedures and rules for D&O liability insurance.
MEDIATION COMMITTEE The Mediation Committee is Co-Chaired by David Burt, of DuPont and Jack Levin, an independent neutral who succeeded A. Stephens Clay of Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton LLP in the spring of 2012. The Committee focuses on issues related to improving the quality of mediation practice, both domestically and internationally. The Committee consists of CPR members throughout the world and is working to identify neutrals to serve on CPR’s Panels of Distinguished Neutrals. The Mediation Committee has been collaborating with the Arbitration Committee on editing the draft Global ADR Guide. In addition, the Committee met in August to begin planning for the Mediation Committee meeting to be held in conjunction with the 2014 Annual Meeting. That meeting will be the third in an increasingly popular series, and will focus on the topic of effective court-connected mediation.
PATENT MEDIATION TASK FORCE The Task Force is Chaired by Manny Schecter of IBM Corporation. It explores benefits and barriers to the effective use of mediation in patent disputes. At CPR’s 2013 Annual Meeting, CPR’s Patent Mediation Task Force released its Effective Practices Protocol endorsing the use of ADR in patent disputes and a pamphlet detailing why mediation works in patent cases.
PRODUCT LIABILITY COMMITTEE This Committee, Chaired by Dale Matschullat of Schiff Hardin LLP, encompasses a group of manufacturers, claimants, insurers and others who are examining product liability litigation in the hopes of generating a guide to the efficient and just resolution of such claims. The Committee, which includes representatives of all interested parties, such as indemnitors’ and claimants’ attorneys, has developed a “Protocol for Early Case Resolution of Product Liability Cases.” The Committee has also developed a tool kit to assist businesses to implement the Protocol.
THE NATIONAL TASK FORCE ON DIVERSITY IN ADR The Task Force is Co-Chaired by Thomas Sager of DuPont, Laurel Pyke Malson of Crowell & Moring LLP and Charles Morgan of The Morgan Group. It was established to devise practical strategies to increase the participation of women and minorities in mediation, arbitration and other ADR processes. The Task Force coordinates with minority bar associations on diversity initiatives around the country and administers the annual “CPR Award for Outstanding Contribution to Diversity in ADR,” which honors a person who has contributed significantly to diversity in the ADR field. The Task Force has developed and launched a “Diver sit y Commitment”, an ADR mentoring program, and an apprentice program designed to promote fur ther diversity among neutrals chosen to mediate or arbitrate by large corporations. It also held a training program on implicit bias at CPR’s Annual Meeting.

ENGINEERING the FUTURE
MEETINGS AND SEMINARS
CPR’s meetings and seminars provide an invaluable way of exchanging best practices for avoiding, managing, and resolving complex commercial disputes. CPR has devoted substantial resources to providing opportunities to convene member corporations and law firms, professors, judges, neutrals, agency representatives, and others to analyze and refine conflict resolution techniques, procedures and systems. CPR’s events provide a unique venue where the world’s leading experts gather to critically examine the trends and processes that advance ADR innovation.
“My company supports the CPR meetings consistently. No other organization so successfully convenes legal and business leadership for discourse on conflict management that is so sophisticated and, at the same time, so practical.” Mary Beth Cantrell Senior Associate, General Counsel Amgen, Inc. 18
2013 CPR ANNUAL MEETING (AM 13)
CPR’s highly-successful 2013 Annual Meeting was held from January 17-19, 2013 at The Lodge at Torrey Pines in San Diego, California. The theme of the meeting was “Taking the ‘A’ Out of ADR: Dispute Resolution as a Business Process.” The meeting focused on an issue of critical importance to all companies as they seek to resolve disputes in an era of increasingly constrained judicial resources: how to transform dispute resolution from an adjunct or alternative process, to a primary method of managing conflict with the same degree of focus and sophistication as other core business processes. Highlights of the meeting included a key note address by Verna- Myers, the nationally recognized expert in diversity issues, who addressed an issue that is intrinsic to trust in any system of dispute resolution, whether
within or outside of the courts: how to recognize and address issues that can undermine diversit y and give rise to perceptions of bias. A second keynote speaker was Justice Carlos Moreno, whose service as Associate Justice of the California Supreme Court and a Federal District Court Judge for the Central District of California places him in a unique position to address the challenges faced by our courts. Panelists and participants included leading jurists, an outstanding group of leading General Counsel, top at torneys, and international arbitration and mediation experts. The program commenced with a panel of leading present and former jurists who addressed the challenges facing the courts and discussed opportunities for systematic dispute resolution processes, both in connection with the courts and independently, addressing and ameliorating those challenges. Other highlights included the launch of the DuPont-CPR ADR Counsel Workshops, which enabled practitioners to adapt the indepth material in the CPR-DuPont Corporate Global ADR Guide to their day-to-day needs. Panels addressed the following: the impact of the Supreme Court’s decision in AT&T Mobility on a wide range of issues beyond consumer class actions; key developments on the international arbitration front; the

timing and elements necessary to successful mediation and the roles of the stakeholders in preparing for success; dispute resolution issues in the biotech / pharmaceutical industries; the potentially transformative impact of technology on dispute resolution, and key ethical issues that arise in mediation and arbitration. Finally, CPR’s popular Inhouse Counsel panel addressed best practices in dispute resolution as a business process.
Recent Y-ADR seminars have been organized in Paris, France (“Current Developments in Mediation and Other ADR Techniques”), New York City (“Diversity in ADR: Challenges and Steps Forward”) and in San Francisco, where CPR and Morrison & Foerster LLP presented a distinguished panel of experts engaged in a wide ranging discussion of what the future holds for litigation and alternative dispute resolution.
CPR’s 2014 Annual Meeting will be held from February 20-22, 2014 at Charleston Place in Charleston, South Carolina.

With around 93,0 0 0 employees in more than 90 countries and territories, Shell’s work, spearheaded by Mr. Rees, advances industry technologies and pushes the boundaries of dispute resolution in developing the tools and infrastructure to apply ADR internationally. The event raised more than $1M in suppor t of CPR’s educational, research and public policy programs. In November of 2013 CPR celebrated its 10th Annual Corporate Leadership Award Dinner honoring Hewlett-Packard Company and John F.

CPR brings together leading industr y experts to craft detailed ADR clauses, rules, codes and procedures for busines s agreements and proceedings. CPR members have exclusive access to CPR’s research and draf ting resources, as well as, direc t involvement in creating this wealth of intellectual property.
Other highlights included an exploration of the use of ADR in patent disputes; a case study on the independence of the ADR neutral; a series of World Perspectives articles by columnists Giuseppe De Palo and Mary B. Trevor, a series on “Rethinking Mediation”; CPR Neutral Panel profiles; and Jonat han Mar k ’s c omm e nt ar ie s on negotiation success.
In addition to the print version, CPR members receive a digital copy of Alternatives via email and have access via the CPR website to full text articles going back to Alternatives’ 1983 inception. Alternatives publisher, John Wiley & Sons, has set up a new site devoted exclusively to the publication at www. altnewsletter.com, and launched an iPhone / iPad app for mobile access.
C P R ’s a w a r d - w i n n i n g newslet ter provides international ADR coverage and sk ill development articles. In 2013, Alternatives was recognized by industry peers with an APEX 2013 Award of Excellence in the “News Writing” category. Alternatives’ coverage included details on a Massachusetts decision on mediation, neutrals and the unauthorized practice of law, as well as an analysis of the recent domestic and international arbitration cases. This year saw the return of Robert Creo, whose monthly Master Mediator column was re-launched with a feature on getting the most out of what appears to be ADR failure. Alternatives also featured a comprehensive analysis and special arbitration repor t analyzing and summarizing the briefs of the Fifth Circuit employment ADR class waiver battle.
NEW PUBLICATIONS This year’s committee efforts resulted in several substantial pieces of work that advance the ADR field. CPR’s “Guidelines for Arbitrators Conducting Complex Arbitrations” – Developed by the CPR Arbitration Commit tee, Chaired by Lawrence W. Newman, these guidelines have as their governing principle, the achievement by the arbitrators of a fair award, arrived at
efficiently. The guidelines urge arbitrators to conduct proceedings in a way that is, from the outset, mindful of what and how the parties will have to present to them which will enable them to take full account of the parties’ presentations and deliver a prompt award. CPR’s “Report of the CPR Patent Mediation Task Force: Effective Prac tices Protocol” – These cut ting-edge protocols were developed by CPR’s Patent Mediation Task Force under the direction of Manny W. Schecter, IBM Chief Patent Counsel and three Subcommittee Chairpersons: Harrie Samaras, Kevin Casey, and John Delehanty. The report endorses the use of ADR in patent disputes, an area in which the cost of litigation has been astronomical. CPR’s Administered Arbitration R u l e s – CPR ’s A r bi t r a t io n Commit tee, Chaired by Ank Santens of White & Case LLP in New York and the Administered Arbitration Rules Subcommittee, Chaired by Robert Smit of Simpson Thacher & Bartlett LLP in New York, led the effort to draft the new Administered Arbitration Rules this year.
