Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) is an inclusive term describing a variety of options that can be used to resolve construction and business disputes without the involvement of the courts. ADR is increasingly preferred to litigation, and is consistently ordered by courts looking to employ alternatives to the traditional, formal litigation process. In whatever form it takes, ADR is typically less costly, time consuming and emotionally draining than traditional litigation. BLG’s attorneys are trained in the nuances of the ADR process and regularly serve as mediators and arbitrators in ADR proceedings.
