Alternative Dispute Resolution

An Alternative Dispute Resolution is also known as ADR.

These are methods of attempting to resolve a Contract Dispute without going to court.

Arbitration, Mediation and Negotiation are also types of ADR.

Contracts may contain a Clause requiring the Parties to follow specific processes if a contract-related disagreement occurs.

Such a Clause may prevent a Party from starting court proceedings at all or without first following the prescribed process.

You can track any ADRs with third parties via Gatekeeper's auditable history.
