The Courts are increasingly supportive of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR), both prior to and after proceedings have been issued.
ADR can result in significant savings, based on the commercial advantages of achieving an early resolution, avoiding the escalation of legal costs and minimising the distraction of management from core business activities. A successful result can achieve an outcome that encompasses more than a monetary award while preserving a business relationship.
