Alternative Dispute Resolution In General

Alternative Dispute Resolution in General in relation to the Technology and Construction Court

The court will provide encouragement to the parties to use alternative dispute resolution (“ADR”) and will, whenever appropriate, facilitate the use of such a procedure. In this Guide, Alternative Dispute Resolution is taken to mean any process through which the parties attempt to resolve their dispute, which is voluntary. In most cases, Alternative Dispute Resolution takes the form of inter-party negotiations or a mediation conducted by a neutral mediator. Alternative forms of Alternative Dispute Resolution include early neutral evaluation either by a judge or some other neutral person who receives a concise presentation from each party and then provides his or her own evaluation of the case. The parties are advised to refer to the Alternative Dispute Resolution Handbook. Although the Technology and Construction Court is an appropriate forum for the resolution of all IT and construction/engineering disputes, the use of Alternative Dispute Resolution can lead to a significant saving of costs and may result in a settlement which is satisfactory to all parties. Legal representatives in all Technology and Construction Court cases should ensure that their clients are fully aware of the benefits of Alternative Dispute Resolution and that the use of Alternative Dispute Resolution has been carefully considered prior to the first case management conference.
