What Is ADR?

Alternative Dispute Resolution, commonly referred to as ADR, describes a wide variety of alternative formats used to resolve disputes without conventional public court trials or hearings. These formats enable litigants to settle disputes fairly, quickly, conveniently and economically, and provide the added benefits of greater flexibility and control over the process and its outcome.
