What is Alternative Dispute Resolution?
You may have heard of the term “alternative dispute resolution” (ADR), but what does it actually mean? ADR is a way to resolve disputes without going through the traditional court system. This can be done through mediation, arbitration, or conciliation.
There are many benefits to using ADR, such as:
-It is usually faster than going to court
-It is usually cheaper than going to court
-It is less formal than going to court
-It allows you and the other party to have more control over the outcome
-It can help preserve relationships between you and the other party
What is Mediation?
Mediation is when you and the other party meet with a neutral third person, who is called a mediator. The mediator helps you communicate with each other and try to reach an agreement. The mediator does not make decisions for you or tell you what to do, but rather helps facilitate communication so that you can try to come to an agreement on your own.
If you do reach an agreement, the mediator will put it in writing so that it can be enforced by the court if necessary.
What is Arbitration?
Arbitration is similar to mediation, but instead of having a mediator who just facilitates communication, you have an arbitrator who hears both sides of the dispute and then makes a binding decision about the outcome.
What is Conciliation?
Conciliation is when you and the other party meet with a conciliator, who helps facilitate communication between you so that you can try to reach an agreement on your own. However, unlike mediation, conciliation also involves giving advice or making suggestions about how the dispute could be resolved.
If you are involved in a dispute, alternative dispute resolution may be a good option for you. It is usually faster and cheaper than going to court, and it allows you to have more control over the outcome. There are three types of ADR: mediation, arbitration, and conciliation. In mediation, you meet with a neutral third person who helps facilitate communication so that you can try to come to an agreement on your own. In arbitration, you have an arbitrator who hears both sides of the dispute and then makes a binding decision about the outcome. In conciliation, you meet with a conciliator who helps facilitate communication between you so that you can try to reach an agreement on your own. If you are considering using ADR to resolve a dispute, contact a solicitor who specialises in this area for more information.
