Alternative Dispute Resolution is an emerging field with phenomenal growth. This phenomenal growth reflects the rise in the number of professions and industries that have become knowledgeable about dispute resolution and the growing number of success stories associated with the use of alternative dispute resolution. Over crowded court with cases lasting for 20 years and the escalating costs of lawsuits have created a need for viable alternatives to litigation.
