What is Alternative Dispute Resolution?
Alternative Dispute Resolution, or ADR, lets parties settle their disputes in an informal venue and is often a less expensive and faster resolution method than traditional litigation. ADR is also a private resolution method, which can be especially attractive to businesses who do not wish to have a public record of the finer details of their dispute, as can happen with litigation. Lastly, ADR is extremely customizable, meaning that the parties can schedule the process as it suits them, without worrying about the availability of our already-overloaded court system.
What is Mediation?
Parties in dispute choose a mediator, an impartial third party, who helps them reach a mutually acceptable settlement by facilitating negotiation and discussion of the issue(s) at hand. If both parties are committed to reaching a settlement through mediation, the skill of the mediator can help them reach a solution in a short period of time. Mediation can be carried out in person, or remotely using teleconference technology. This can be especially helpful for parties who are not located geographically close to one another.
What is Arbitration?
Parties in dispute refer their disagreement to a mutually acceptable, knowledgeable, independent third party – an Arbitrator – agreeing in advance to be bound by the arbitrator’s decision. Although some disputes, by their very nature, can only be settled by litigation, the majority can be settled by arbitration, with significant benefits to all parties involved. Arbitration provides the benefit of a final settlement of the issue(s) while also allowing for privacy and customization of the process itself.
