Alternative Dispute Resolution

Litigation though is a powerful tool, it is not the only way to solve legal issues. Sometimes a “win” at court comes at too high a cost: it can be expensive, time-consuming, stressful, and might result in damage to your relationships. Luckily, to dodge these stressful situations a range of alternatives dispute resolution exists, such as – Arbitration, Mediation, Negotiation, Conciliation, Mini-trials, Fact-finding and Dispute prevention.

These concerns about the expense and delay associated with traditional litigation in state judicial systems have led to an international movement to seek alternative forms of dispute resolution. We at PLC, have created an Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) practice for our Commercial & Family disputes. The team headed by our Founder who is an accredited mediator includes senior lawyers, retired senior judges, as well as a distinguished group of experienced ADR practitioners, each with extensive experience in alternative adjudicative processes.
