What is ADR?

Alternative Dispute Resolution (“ADR”) is simply an inclusive term which describes all forms of dispute resolution other than litigation or adjudication through the courts.

ADR mechanisms provide people and entities an opportunity to resolve disputes and conflict through the utilisation of a process that is best suited to the particular dispute or conflict without involving courts.

ADR covers a broad range of mechanisms and processes designed to assist parties in resolving disputes creatively and effectively. These mechanisms and processes are not intended to end all litigation through the courts, but rather to supplement it.

The focus and goals of ADR mechanisms are to relieve court congestion, as well as prevent undue cost and delay, to enhance community involvement in the dispute resolution process, to facilitate access to justice and to provide more effective dispute resolution.

The types of ADR mechanisms include but not are limited to consultation, negotiation, facilitation, conciliation, mediation, adjudication and arbitration.

Arbitration is a process in which a dispute is submitted, by agreement of the parties, to one or more Arbitrators who make a binding decision regarding the outcome of the dispute.
