ADR & Arbitration

ADR & Arbitration

Alternative Dispute Resolution (“ADR”) is a procedure for settling disputes without litigation; such as arbitration, mediation, or negotiation. These procedures are usually less costly and more expeditious. Negotiating or mediating a dispute through alternative dispute resolution is often the most effective strategy for achieving commercial certainty and helps to protect the commercial relationship with the opposing party through forward-looking commercial arrangements.

Arbitration is a procedure in which a dispute is submitted, by the agreement of the parties, to one or more arbitrators who make a binding decision on the relevant dispute. Arbitration should not be confused with mediation; the arbitrator is obliged by certain rules, rather than to seek compromise, which is the mediator's task. Therefore, companies frequently include an arbitration clause in their commercial agreements.
