Alternative Conflict Resolution

Navigating Challenges: The Power of Alternative Conflict Resolution

Disputes and disagreements are an unfortunate reality of the construction industry. Traditional litigation can be a lengthy, costly, and stressful process. However, there is an alternative: Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR). ADR provides a set of practices designed to resolve disputes outside of court, typically through mediation or arbitration.

Mediation involves a neutral third party facilitating a discussion between the parties to help them reach a mutually acceptable resolution. Arbitration, on the other hand, involves an arbitrator or panel of arbitrators who listen to both sides and make a decision, which can be either binding or non-binding.

Why You Need Alternative Conflict Resolution

Cost and Time Savings:

ADR can often resolve disputes more quickly and less expensively than traditional court proceedings, saving both time and money.

Control Over the Process:

Parties have more flexibility in determining how the dispute will be resolved, including control over the timing and framework of the process.


Unlike public court trials, ADR proceedings are private and confidential. This can help preserve business relationships and protect reputation.

Preservation of Relationships:

The less adversarial nature of ADR can help maintain and sometimes even strengthen business relationships that might otherwise be damaged in litigation.
