Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR)
Alternative Dispute Resolution or ADR is simply a process whereby a dispute is concluded without expensive court action and can be achieved in various ways including by informal negotiation or at a mediation meeting followed by the completion of a settlement agreement.
The court rules require all parties to a civil dispute to consider ADR in the hope of avoiding litigation, where and if possible. Therefore, whether you wish to pursue a claim or defend one, you will need to engage in some form of ADR before or during any court proceedings.
