James F. Henry was the founder and longtime President of CPR Institute (International Institute for Conflict Prevention and Resolution), a nonprofit program of several hundred corporations, law firms, government attorneys, and academics, whose mission is to develop alternatives to corporate, government, and international litigation. CPR was responsible for the “Corporate Pledge,” which in the mid-1980s committed more than 4,000 companies to consider alternatives to litigation in disputes with other pledge signers. James F. Henry remains one of the most effective and influential leaders in bringing Alternative Dispute Resolution into the mainstream of American legal practice.
