What is Alternative Dispute Resolution?
Peaceful Effective Methods
Alternative dispute resolution (ADR) provides peaceful effective methods of resolving conflicts. Neutral third parties assist individuals engaged in conflict - find a settlement, through the use of mediation and arbitration. Alternative Dispute Resolution is a growing practice and helps individuals in a variety of fields including:
- Employment issues
- Commercial disputes
- Landlord-tenant issues
- International disputes
- Public policy issues
- Neighbor-to-neighbor disputes and
- Family issues
This rapid rise is primarily attributed to the desires of parties on both sides of a dispute to reach a settlement and avoid slow, costly litigation.
