Dispute Resolution, Mediation, Commercial Litigation
ADR or Alternative Dispute Resolution is a term we use for resolving legal disputes without the cost of going to Court. It involves trying to reach an agreement in which an impartial person called an ADR practitioner or Alternative Dispute Resolution practitioner, assists people involved in a dispute and works to resolve the issues between the parties.
These alternative dispute resolution processes may be advisory, facilitative, determinative, and in some cases there’s a combination of them.
In a facilitative process like mediation, the alternative dispute resolution expert (usually a barrister) uses multiple methods to address the issues and work to find a resolution to that dispute.
In advisory processes like expert appraisal or conciliation, the person will advise the parties about the various issues and the range of outcomes that may be possible.
In determinative processes like arbitration, there are more formal techniques used to inform the arbitrator so an award can be determined which will resolve the issue at hand.
