Dispute resolution | Legal Guides

There are a number of reasons why parties with a dispute might prefer to use ADR rather than having a case heard in court. These include:

  • Privacy: the meetings involved in arbitration, mediation or other ADR methods take place in private rather than in open court.
  • Cost: with the exception of arbitration, the cost involved in all other forms of ADR are usually only a fraction of the cost that would be involved in litigation.
  • Speed: the parties involved in a dispute have more control over the process and are in a position to ensure that their dispute is dealt with promptly.
