Types of ADR


Negotiation is a form of ADR where parties involved in a dispute communicate directly with each other to reach a mutually acceptable agreement. This process allows for flexibility and is often done informally.

Expert Determination 

Expert Determination involves an impartial expert assessing the dispute and issuing a binding decision based on their expertise. It offers a swift and cost-effective resolution, particularly beneficial in complex or technical matters.


The most typical form of ADR is mediation, a collaborative process where a neutral third party, the mediator, facilitates discussions between disputing parties. Mediation is typically voluntary, confidential, and focuses on finding common ground, fostering compromise, and preserving relationships.
