Resolving Conflicts Through Arbitration And Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR)
When business law clients need to resolve conflicts in the least damaging ways, they often look at arbitration and other forms of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) as a formula to avoid a trial. This is often an intelligent goal since trials carry with them many unknowns and a great risk of losing more than one gains by taking a dispute before a judge.
Arbitration and mediation, on the other hand, keep the focus on the parties engaged in a dispute. While it may be overoptimistic to hope for a win-win resolution to a business or commercial dispute, a resolution that minimizes losses in the process for both sides is often a worthwhile goal. Furthermore, some business contracts include mandatory arbitration clauses. Likewise, some judges require mediation before hearing cases in a courtroom.
