Alternative Dispute Resoluton - ADR

Why use Alternative Dispute Resolution?

We believe very strongly that, in almost every case, ADR is a better alternative than going to court. It is usually faster, cheaper and less stressful. It can also often preserve a workable relationship between you and the person with whom you are in dispute - something that it is very difficult to achieve after you have been to court.

The degree to which ADR is acceptable or even permissible varies from country to country, as does the extent to which the decisions made are legally and financially binding upon the parties involved. On our view, ADR which is not legally binding is usually - but not always - a waste of time.

The extent to which ADR might be a sensible solution to your particular problem will, thereofre, depend upon and number of factors. These will include the nature of your dispute and the financial or other importance of it.

To find out whether ADR might be of help to you please contact us by clicking on the link below.

If we are unable to help by dealing with the dispute using ADR we should be able to help by dealing with it through the normal negotiation and court processes.

Dealing with a dispute in a foreign country requires a detailed knowledge of the local law and customs as well as the same level of knowledge about the law in your own country. We cannot stress enough that it is the interaction - and sometimes conflict - between the two systems that creates most of the potential problems and many of the best potential opportunities for saving you time, trouble and money.
