Dispute resolution or alternative resolution dispute refers to the process of resolving conflicts or disputes between two or more parties. There are a variety of methods that can be used to resolve disputes, including alternative DR (ADR) methods such as arbitration, mediation, and negotiation, as well as the traditional legal system. In ADR, a neutral third party helps the parties to reach a mutually satisfactory resolution without going to court. ADR methods can be quicker, less formal, and less expensive than going to court, and they can be used to resolve a wide range of disputes, including those related to business, employment, family, and consumer issues.
