Alternative Dispute Resolution & Mediation

Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) refers to the methods that can be used to resolve or settle a dispute without resorting to litigation. Mediation, Negotiation, Arbitration and Conciliation are all examples of ADR. ADR focuses on allowing parties to resolve their disputes by finding a solution that is acceptable to both sides. It is often faster and less confrontational than traditional litigation and allows parties to maintain their relationships.
