An Updated Neutrals’ Panel and The Revised Meeting Program CPR AND INTA EXPAND A NEUTRALS‘ PANEL This month, the CPR Institute for Dispute Resolution and the International Trademark Associationjointly announced the expansion of its panel of neutrals, to 54 from 23, to reflect the depth ofexpertise that has developed in the trademark field. CPR and INTA, a New York-based nonprofit trade group, partnered to develop the C P W INTAAlternative Dispute Resolution program in 1994 to provide customized options for parties with conflicts involving trademark and related issues. T h e program’s goal is to provide parties with cost efficient and early resolution of their disputes. The ADR program began with a 25-person panel of trained neutrals who also were experienced practitioners in trademark and unfair competition law. While establishing the original ADR Panel, the two organizations also created a book, “ADR in Trademark & Unfair Competition Disputes,” which outlines ADR use in trademark disputes. Earlier this year, a select committee of practitioners, neutrals, CPR experts and INTA representativesreviewed the qualifications of trademark attorneys, and made the panel selections. In order to ensureADR expertise, each new panelist is required to participate in a day-long training session conducted by members of the CPR Training Corps. The panel members are listed below.
