ADR

Back to Dispute Resolution

Alternative dispute resolution has greatly expanded over the last several years to include many areas of law in addition to the traditional commercial disputes. ADR has become an important first step in the dispute resolution process and more often clients are in the need of assistance. Rising costs of litigation and time delays continue to plague litigants, and more and more clients have begun experimenting ADR solutions and request international assistance. CMS Adonnino Ascoli & Cavasola Scamoni has a team of mediators which have had an active role in avoiding ordinary litigation procedures for clients and have been able to advise them efficiently providing problem-solving suggestions, avoiding lengthy procedures.
