Alternative dispute resolution

Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) offers a streamlined and cost-effective alternative to traditional litigation. Our ADR services encompass mediation, arbitration, and negotiation, providing clients with efficient options for resolving disputes outside the courtroom. This approach often fosters quicker resolutions, allowing parties to maintain greater control over the outcome. Our seasoned ADR professionals are adept at arranging effective and favorable resolutions, ensuring that your intellectual property remains a valuable asset. Opting for ADR as a strategic approach to dispute resolution reflects the client's commitment to embracing innovation and enhancing efficiency. Our team of experts will navigate the complexities of the conflicts while the client focusses on advancing their intellectual property interests.

ADR is a term that refers to dispute resolution outside of court. In that sense, ADR is an alternative to the system of adjudication by courts of law.
