Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR)

Parties often do not wish to fight their disputes before ordinary public courts but prefer to reach out-of-court settlements.

LST has experienced lawyers with perfect knowledge of the various instruments of alternative dispute settlement. These are, in particular, arbitration proceedings which resemble litigation proceedings but which are private, as well as mediation as a method for facilitating settlement agreements.

Further methods exist where one or several neutral parties form a recommendation or a decision which might have different binding effect. Traditionally, these methods comprise conciliation or decision by expert opinions. In recent times, in particular in construction disputes, adjudication proceedings or disputes boards have been more regularly used.

LST has sufficient know-how for all these methods to be options.
