The Dispute Prevention Committee is a new committee that has been formed in recognition of the growing interest among legal, risk management and business communities to identify potentially disruptive issues early on and design mechanisms to address them before they impair projects and business relationships. The Committee aims to cultivate a forum to support business leaders’ desire to resolve problems before they spiral into legal disputes. To that end, we will explore dispute prevention methods that both in house and outside counsel can offer business leaders to avoid the escalation of conflicts that would result in litigation. The Committee will work with other Sections and Committees within and outside the Dispute Resolution Section to promote a better understanding of the dispute prevention tools available to practitioners as well as their efficient and effective use.
