TORONTO, Feb. 1 /CNW/ - The International Institute for Conflict Prevention & Resolution (CPR Institute), has presented the organization's first ever "Law Firm Award for Excellence in Alternative Dispute Resolution for a Small Law Firm" to a Toronto-based firm. CPR Institute, located in NYC, NY is a nonprofit think tank and alliance of global corporations, law firms, scholars, and public institutions dedicated to the principles of commercial conflict prevention and alternative dispute resolution (ADR).

Small Firm Award - Goldman Sloan Nash & Haber LLP
Goldman Sloan Nash & Haber LLP (GSNH), a nationally recognized Toronto-based law firm that has served the legal needs of businesses and individuals for 35 years, was recognized for its commitment to ADR practice and education and for its focus on dispute resolution practices.

"For commitment to principled and creative conflict management and resolution, the CPR Institute is proud to honor this outstanding firm," said Kathleen A. Bryan, CEO of the CPR Institute. "They have set a successful benchmark for addressing resolution, prevention and management of major disputes in multiple practice areas." 

The firm makes training in ADR available to their lawyers, encourages their lawyers to advance their knowledge in ADR and boasts an international library devoted to ADR. Team Resolution, their Toronto-based Alternative Dispute Resolution group, has provided years of sought after ADR services worldwide.

Team Resolution's Chair, David Bristow Q.C. states, "We are delighted and honored to receive this prestigious award from such an eminent international institution.  It is recognition of the firm's long standing commitment to ADR and to the field of dispute and conflict management."

In 2007, CPR created the Law Firm Award for Excellence in ADR to recognize law firms that demonstrate an integrated approach and a deep commitment to using ADR principles and techniques. Having recognized the difference in practices among large and small firms, CPR made two law firm awards in 2010 -- one for large firms and one for small firms.

The judging criteria includes processes, techniques, systems, commitment and scholarship which address the resolution, prevention or creative management of major disputes.  Herbert Smith LLP, an international legal practice with 1100 lawyers (including over 200 partners) and a network of offices in Europe and Asia, was the 2010 honoree for a large law firm.
