Hon. Lawrence F. Stengel (Ret.) provides a brief overview of Optimal Dispute Resolutions.

When is ADR appropriate?

Mediation and arbitration are commonly used tools to resolve disputes outside of the courtroom. ADR may be the most appropriate method of resolution when a dispute arises and it is in the best interest of the associated parties.

Why ADR?

Litigation is expensive, time consuming, a drain on company resources, and largely unpredictable. ADR provides various processes to resolve a dispute short of litigation.
