ADR, or alternative dispute resolution, is a method of resolving conflicts without going to court that is frequently quicker and less expensive.
Keeping the specifics of a dispute private and assisting in maintaining important commercial and personal connections that could be destroyed by court proceedings are additional potential advantages of choosing the ADR route over heading straight to court.
In fact, most courts do require people involved in civil and business litigation to take steps to resolve the disagreement, even though ADR may not be appropriate in every case.
If one of the parties to a dispute unreasonably refuses to negotiate, the court has the authority to impose consequences, typically financial fines.
Our skilled ADR lawyers at Pearl Lemon Legal consistently look for the most practical and economical means to settle conflicts. Negotiation, mediation, and arbitration are just a few of the Alternative Dispute Resolution techniques in which we excel.
When ADR fails or is not a good fit for a client’s situation, our team and other associates to whom clients may be referred have a very strong track record of success in court procedures.
