Arbitration (ADR)

Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) is an alternative to the Formal Legal System

Chaos and conflict are a part and parcel of life as a whole. How we manage or handle such conflicts and chaotic situations are what matters the most. Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) refers to a variety of streamlined resolution techniques designed to resolve issues in controversy more efficiently when the normal negotiation process fails. 

Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) is an alternative to the Formal Legal System. It is an alternative to Litigation. In modern times, the existing judicial system finds it difficult to cope with the ever increasing burden of civil litigation. Not many in Business can afford litigation due to the usual delays in the process of justice and huge expenses.

Right through the 80’s and 90’s a strong demand for ADR in the corporate world gained momentum and serious efforts were made to grow and find more efficient and effective alternates to litigation. Thereafter, India has witnessed an explosion in the number of private use of arbitration and mediation as ADR was introduced and adopted India.

The ADR procedures consist of negotiation, conciliation, mediation and arbitration. The Arbitration and Conciliation Act 1996 is an Act that regulates domestic arbitration in India. It was later amended in 2015.
