Let's talk

Alternative dispute resolution (ADR), is a legal process, which includes a range of processes to find a resolution to a dispute, with the support of a third party.

Alternative dispute resolution assists disagreeing parties come to an agreement on a matter that cannot be resolved through pre-action discussion. ADR can save all parties involved time and expense by avoiding litigation and going to the court.

This process can usually be explored before or during a dispute.

There are five main types of alternative dispute resolution, which include:

• Mediation – a third party facilitating a resolution;

• Arbitration – a third party deciding the dispute;

• Early neutral evaluation – a third party giving an informed opinion on the dispute;

• Adjudication – a process by which an independent adjudicator provides the parties with a decision that can resolve the dispute either permanently or on a temporary basis, pending subsequent court determination; and

• Ombudsman schemes.
