Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) Benefits

What you should know

Alternative Conflict Resolution Services is the use of dispute resolution approaches without recourse to legal proceedings. Typically, they require a neutral third party to help find a creative solution to a problem. Yet, what are the forms of dispute resolution and their advantages? Read on as we look into this post more carefully.

Specific Forms of Dispute Resolution

Mediation

A neutral third party called a "mediator" is needed during a face-to-face meeting with all parties during mediation. The Karima Muhammad firm assists in a conflict by defining issues and establishing solutions for the disputing parties.

Like Mediator Karima Muhammad, a negotiator typically does not give any opinion or assessment of the dispute and does not play any role in deciding any outcome.

Arbitration

 

A neutral party called the "arbitrator" listens to claims during arbitration and considers facts submitted by either side of a dispute, and decides the outcome. Arbitration is comparable to the litigation process, in which the arbitrator provides conflict resolution.

 

Neutral evaluation

 

During a fair evaluation, the party involved in a dispute may present their case to an objective third party, called a "mediator." He or she will help conflicting parties determine potential outcomes and win-win solutions.

 

Benefits

 

A single procedure

 

ADR grants the parties the experience to settle disputes in a single procedure without lengthy and ongoing hearings in the courtroom.

 

Reduced expenses

 

With ADR, you will be able to save the majority of your resources, and you can even redirect that money and energy into better things. Cost-effective, isn't it?

 

Confidential

 

Court proceedings and litigations are usually open to the public. If you don't want the whole world to know you and your partner decided to have a divorce, parties can reach an agreement through ADR to keep all proceedings and conclusions confidential. It gives the parties involved the freedom to concentrate on the settlement without any public impact.

 

Preserve corporate relationships

 

ADR may maintain the chances of any continuing contractual relationship between the disputing parties during workplace conflict where litigation and court proceedings can kill the professional relationship.
