Top 8 FAQs for Alternative Dispute Resolutions (ADR)

What is Alternative Dispute Resolution?

ADR is a process that allows parties to resolve disputes without litigation, using techniques like mediation, arbitration, or negotiation.

How does mediation differ from arbitration?

Mediation involves a neutral third party helping disputants reach a voluntary agreement. In arbitration, the arbitrator makes a binding decision on the outcome.

Is the outcome of ADR legally binding?

Outcomes can be binding or non-binding depending on the method used; arbitration results are typically binding, while mediation agreements require parties' consent to be legally binding.

Can ADR be used in any type of legal dispute?

ADR is suitable for most civil disputes, including commercial, family, and employment issues, but may not be applicable for all criminal matters.

What are the benefits of using ADR?

Benefits include reduced legal costs, faster resolution, privacy, and the ability to craft creative, personalised solutions.

What should I prepare for an ADR session?

It’s helpful to prepare any documents related to the dispute and think about your objectives and possible compromises.

Can decisions made through ADR be appealed?

Generally, arbitration decisions are final and can only be challenged under certain circumstances. Mediation agreements, once signed, are as enforceable as contracts.

How long does the ADR process take?

The duration can vary widely but is typically much shorter than in traditional court cases, often taking just a few hours or days.
