Alternate Dispute Resolution

ADR is defined as any method of dispute resolution other than formal adjudication such as court litigation or administrative proceedings.


And what sets a formal mediation process apart from the average conflict resolution process?

  • Like any intervention, you meet with the parties separately, review the data and prepare.
  • There is a "set" format of things to cover in the mediators opening statement.
  • Parties define their interests and issues (not their demands).
  • From this an agenda is set.
  • The issues are explored
  • Working with the parties, options are generated and problem solving begins.
  • Once an agreement is reach a written agreement including implementation aspects are drawn up and signed.
