Alternative Dispute Resolution

Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) involves the resolution of a matter by a method other than traditional litigation. There are three main types of ADR: negotiation, mediation (including conciliation), and arbitration. ADR is often preferred over traditional litigation because it involves a less formal atmosphere than the court room and is less expensive and time consuming than litigation. Moreover, matters can be resolved in private and kept confidential, and the parties can often select the decision maker, who will often have commercial and/or industrial experience. ADR also helps to reduce the caseloads for courts.
