CPR launches 2017 survey on dispute resolution practices
All in-house lawyers and dispute managers are invited to contribute to this piece of research.
This is the International Institute for Conflict Prevention and Resolution’s (CPR) inaugural survey, in conjunction with CEDR, and the first in a series of surveys designed to gather and share, qualitative information on how in-house counsel are utilising ADR to resolve disputes. Topics covered include best practice, what ADR techniques in-house counsel have found to be most effective and what challenges in-house counsel face when using ADR.
As you know, the confidential nature of dispute resolution has often served as an impediment to the collection of hard data that can serve as the foundation for ADR process improvements. Your perspectives are critical to the value of this survey, which is intended to provide respondents with much broader access to information and analysis regarding dispute resolution practices.
CONTENT: The 2017 survey is designed to identify in-house counsel views on a range of issues, including:
- Dispute Resolution Management
- The Role of and Relationship with Outside Counsel
- Use of Arbitration and Mediation in a Domestic Context
- Use of Arbitration and Mediation in a Cross-Border Context
- Common Attitudes and Approaches in Dispute Resolution
PARTICIPANTS: We would appreciate it if you would share this survey with all of those within your company who play a role in the company’s dispute resolution processes. All responses must be received by midnight EDT on August 1, 2017.
Note: Allow 25-30 minutes to complete this survey. The option to skip ahead will be provided at the beginning of each section.
