Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR)

We believe that settling a matter in court is not the only option to resolve a dispute.

Our team will suggest various types of alternative dispute resolution to you before requesting the court to decide on a matter.

What is ADR?

ADR provides a confidential dispute resolution mechanism outside of a court of law, by which a dispute or difference is submitted to an impartial individual(s), either for determination or to assist the parties in reaching a negotiated resolution.

This mechanism can lead to a binding resolution if provided for in the agreement by which the parties agree to submit their dispute to ADR. ADR has no statutory basis and is generally not regulated by prescribed rules and regulations (except with some cross-border mediations).

Forms of ADR

There are a variety of different forms of ADR processes and the main ones can broadly be divided into either facilitated processes or imposed decisions.

There are also several more minor forms of ADR which may be appropriate in certain circumstances. It is always important to consider which type of ADR process is more appropriate to your needs.

In some cases, it may be that a combination of processes may be most effective. As every matter is different, we tailor our solution appropriately to the size and complexity of each case.
