What Is Alternative Dispute Resolution?
Alternative dispute resolution is a broad term that encompasses many different methods by which cases can be resolved other than a traditional jury trial. Litigating a matter in court can be time-consuming and costly. Consequently, many people are turning to ADR. It is not uncommon for alternative dispute resolution methods, such as arbitration, to be included in operational contracts as the preferred or required method for resolving potential legal disputes.
Common ADR methods include:
- Bench Trials
- High/Low Agreements
- Informal Settlement Negotiations
- Interim Liability Agreements
Even though alternative dispute resolution is handled outside of the courtroom, you must still secure legal representation to ensure that your rights are protected. Your lawyer can advocate for your best interest and negotiate on your behalf.
The Benefits of Utilizing ADR Methods
Alternative dispute resolution methods are certainly gaining popularity as more and more people in the legal industry begin to appreciate the many benefits.
The benefits of alternative dispute resolution include:
- Often results in a quicker resolution than litigating a matter in court
- Often less expensive than taking a matter to court
- You retain more control over the outcome of your case
- The process and details of your case remain confidential and private
- Compliance with the final agreement is more likely
Another benefit of utilizing ADR is that it can help encourage goodwill between the involved parties. This is particularly beneficial to those who must maintain a working or otherwise close relationship after the issues are resolved.
