Alternative Dispute Resolution
Alternative dispute resolution, commonly known as ‘ADR’ is a process that refers to several different methods of resolving disputes outside of Court, making the process less costly and more expeditious. These processes are confidential, less formal, and less stressful than traditional Court proceedings.
Litigants, lawyers, and judges are constantly adapting existing ADR processes or devising new ones to meet the unique needs of legal disputes.
As court dockets, litigation costs, and time delays continue to rise, ADR grows in popularity; and parties are moving towards ADR processes such as mediation, arbitration and negotiation.
