Choosing to use alternative dispute resolution (ADR) can therefore offer various advantages to the parties, such as the speed and the lower costs of the proceedings, which are less conflict-oriented. This guide is therefore a tool that will enable users who wish to use ADR to determine whether ADR is possible, what the most appropriate method is and which steps need to be taken.
