Risk management and dispute resolution in a global economy is a constant concern for commercial enterprises and non-commercial organizations alike. This blog — ADR: Advice From the Trenches — will provide updates, analyses, and advice regarding the law and practice of international and domestic arbitration, mediation, and more esoteric forms of Alternative Dispute Resolution. We will endeavor to provide insights, largely from experience, to help management and in-house counsel in improving their dispute resolution and risk mitigation processes.

The aims of the ADR “discipline” are to create, refine and practice dispute resolution and risk control methods that are more efficient and effective than those of national courts. Because almost all ADR procedures are privately managed, they may evolve constantly by amendment of institutional ADR rules as well as by ad hoc party agreements concerning particular relationships or with respect to particular disputes. We aim to help our readers stay abreast of relevant changes and best practices in the field.
