What is an alternative dispute resolution?

Alternative dispute resolution", also known as an External Dispute Resolution, is a term that covers a few different processes and techniques of resolving a dispute or argument without the necessity of litigation. The main objective is to get both parties involved in the dispute together and see if they can put aside their differences and come to some sort of agreement. ADR is becoming more and more popular as a solution to litigation, in that it also has the potential to impose fewer costs than litigation.
