Alternative Dispute Resolution
Alternative dispute resolution, or “ADR” is a form of dispute resolution, without resorting to the Courts. This can include negotiation, mediation and arbitration. Often, ADR is more cost-effective than litigation, with the parties themselves being more engaged in the final resolution, rather than a decision rendered by a judge. Likewise, early settlement can facilitate a solution prior to proceeding to more expensive steps in litigation (e.g. discovery).
As problem-solvers, we work to find a solution which keeps our clients’ business interests at the core of the services we offer. We can assist with ADR and settlement if you are in the midst of:
- Disputes in relation to software & licensing agreements, service level & maintenance agreements, and data hosting agreements;
- Joint venture partnership or shareholder disputes;
- Expungement / Trademark Opposition proceedings; and
- Proceedings before the Ontario or Federal courts.
