  • Description of Alternative Dispute Resolution by Wikipedia®

    Alternative dispute resolution (ADR) includes dispute resolution processes and techniques that act as a means for disagreeing parties to come to an agreement short of litigation. Despite historic resistance to ADR by many popular parties and their advocates, ADR has gained widespread acceptance among both the general public and the legal profession in recent years. In fact, some courts now require some parties to resort to ADR of some type, usually mediation, before permitting the parties’ cases to be tried.

    ADR is generally classified into at least four types: negotiation, mediation, collaborative law, and arbitration.

    The salient features of each type are as follows:

    1. In negotiation, participation is voluntary and there is no third party who facilitates the resolution process or imposes a resolution.
    2. In mediation, there is a third party, a mediator, who facilitates the resolution process, but does not impose a resolution on the parties.
    3. In collaborative law or collaborative divorce, each party has an attorney who facilitates the resolution process within specifically contracted terms. The parties reach agreement with support of the attorneys (who are trained in the process) and mutually-agreed experts. No one imposes a resolution on the parties. However, the process is a formalized process that is part of the litigation and court system. Rather than being an Alternative Resolution methodology it is a litigation variant that happens to rely on ADR like attitudes and processes.
    4. In arbitration, participation is typically voluntary, and there is a third party who, as a private judge, imposes a resolution. Arbitrations often occur because parties to contracts agree that any future dispute concerning the agreement will be resolved by arbitration.

    Services offered include Advocacy,Negotiation,and Mediation

    Advocacy
    As described by Wikipedia®

    Advocacy is a political process by an individual or group which normally aims to influence public-policy and resource allocation decisions within political,economic,and social systems and institutions; it may be motivated from moral,ethical or faith principles or simply to protect an asset of interest. Advocacy can include many activities that a person or organization undertakes including media campaigns,public speaking,commissioning and publishing research or poll or the ‘filing of friend of the court briefs’. Lobbying (often by lobby groups) is a form of advocacy where a direct approach is made to legislators on an issue which plays a significant role in modern politics.

    Negotiation
    As described by Wikipedia®

    Negotiation is a dialogue between two or more people or parties,intended to reach an understanding,resolve point of difference,or gain advantage in outcome of dialogue,to produce an agreement upon courses of action,to bargain for individual or collective advantage,to craft outcomes to satisfy various interests of two person/ parties involved in negotiation process. Negotiation is a process where each party involved in negotiating tries to gain an advantage for themselves by the end of the process. Negotiation is intended to aim at compromise.

    Mediation
    As described by Wikipedia®

    Mediation,as used in law,is a form of alternative dispute resolution (ADR),is a way of resolving disputes between two or more parties. A third party,the mediator,assists the parties to negotiate their own settlement (facilitative mediation). In some cases,mediators may express a view on what might be a fair or reasonable settlement,generally where all the parties agree that the mediator may do so (evaluative mediation).

    Mediation has a structure,timetable and dynamics that “ordinary” negotiation lacks. The process is private and confidential. The presence of a mediator is the key distinguishing feature of the process. There may be no obligation to go to mediation,but in some cases,any settlement agreement signed by the parties to a dispute will be binding on them.

    Mediators use various techniques to open,or improve,dialogue between disputants,aiming to help the parties reach an agreement (with concrete effects) on the disputed matter. Much depends on the mediator’s skill and training. The mediator must be wholly impartial. Disputants may use mediation in a variety of disputes,such as commercial,legal,diplomatic,workplace,community and family matters.
