Definition

In simple terms ways of resolving disputes without the necessity of potential legal costs" ADR typically includes early neutral evaluation, negotiation, conciliation, mediation, and arbitration.

 

Burgeoning court queues, rising costs of litigation and time delays continue to plague litigants and more and more people are turning to ADR as a way of resolving disputes.

 

Proposals

The ADR directive is a new piece of European law. It means that from 9 July 2015 alternative ways of resolving contractual disputes between consumers and businesses will be available much more widely across the UK and the EU.

 

Some things aren’t covered by the directive. It is our understanding that complaints from micro-enterprises, charities and trusts are not. Some sectors, like health and education are also not covered by the new directive.

 

The directive encourages the speedy resolution of consumer complaints. From 9 July 2015, ADR providers like the Financial Ombudsman Service should aim to give answers to complaints within 90 days of receiving the complete complaint file.

Costs

The costs of an Alternative Dispute resolution should be considerably less than taking the same to a court and will be much quicker in the main to get a result.

 

Arbitrators have a different mind set and are usually focused in achieving a result on the day.
