ADR is a method of solving conflicts that differs from the courts, arbitration or a binding opinion. Instead of third parties, the parties themselves in fact solve their problems. This allows a relationship to be saved or to be ended in a way that is satisfactory to the parties involved. Mediation takes less time, is cheaper and is less stressful compared to the more traditional method of settling conflicts.
