Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR)

Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) is a term that refers to confidential methods of resolving disputes, allowing parties to address matters outside of court proceedings.

During the course of a dispute, parties have a duty to consider ADR both at the outset and as the dispute progresses, even once court proceedings have been commenced.

Forms of ADR include:

  • Negotiation
  • Mediation
  • Arbitration
  • Adjudication

Each form of Alternative Dispute Resolution has a different process, level of formality and not all decisions reached are legally binding. ADR is confidential and retains a degree of privacy in comparison with court proceedings, often preserving the reputations of those involved.

At rhw we appreciate the benefit of embracing ADR and will explore ADR with you as appropriate as a method of resolving your dispute in a timely and cost-effective manner.

To find out more and maximise the likelihood of resolving your dispute as soon as possible, please contact a member of rhw’s Dispute Resolution team today.
