Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) (also known as external dispute resolution in some countries, such as Australia) includes dispute resolution processes and techniques that act as a means for disagreeing parties to come to an agreement short of litigation. ADR basically is an alternative to a formal court hearing or litigation. It is a collective term for the ways that parties can settle disputes, with (or without) the help of a third party. ADR are ways and methods of resolving disputes outside the judicial process (formal litigation – court).

There are different types of alternative dispute resolutions such as Conciliation, Arbitration or mediation. We can use different ADR for different situations. What type of ADR we want to use actually depends on the matter. If the matter is worth a small amount and it can be solved through easy way, we might want to use the conciliation process.
