Alternative dispute resolution can be an efficient and effective method to resolve problems, especially when communication between the parties has not broken down.
Additionally, ADR methods are a good choice when involved parties want to:
- Work together to find a creative and collaborative solution
- Involve a decision maker with experience in the situation or subject of their dispute as opposed to going to court
- Save money
- Reduce the amount of time needed to solve the issue
- Maintain privacy regarding the problem and solution as opposed to a more public court proceeding
