Alternative Dispute Resolution
Alternative Dispute Resolution, usually referred to as ADR, is the collective term for methods for settling disputes without having to institute proceedings before the Courts. Parties to a dispute usually resort to ADR due to the various benefits this offers when compared to litigation in Court. In fact, ADR is faster, cheaper and more informal and confidential than litigation in Court.
