Legal Column. ADR: Alternative Dispute Resolution

For many years, business organisations in the USA have looked for ways both to reduce the amount of litigation that takes place there and to achieve savings in time and money in the procedures involved in litigation. The first objective - to try to reduce the amount of litigation - faces major constitutional problems; however, the second - to try to reduce the length, complexity and cost of litigation - has in some cases been achieved by Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) techniques.
