ADRIC can assist organizations of all kinds to develop and administer ADR programs designed to resolve disputes between various parties. This may include disputes between private parties within an industry or disputes between organizations and their customers, clients, patients or employees.
Many organizations simply do not have the time, resources or know-how to recruit qualified ADR professionals, design workable systems or administer cases effectively and efficiently. These organizations, nevertheless, wish to reap the rewards of ADR. Having ADR available demonstrates a willingness on the part of an organization to assist the parties in resolving disputes and avoids the high costs of litigation and protracted conflict.
In addition, when ADR processes are administered by a neutral organization such as ADRIC the necessary distance between the ADR professionals and the party paying for ADR services is maintained. This distance ensures that there is neither bias nor the perception or apprehension of bias.
By outsourcing mediation and arbitration to ADRIC, organizations can receive all the benefits of an ADR regime, without having to acquire the expertise necessary for a successful program.
What we provide to organizations:
ADRIC regularly refers lawyers and members of the public to ADR Connect, our online tool that allows the public to select professionals that meet their needs. ADRIC can also provide a short list of mediators or arbitrators for a fee. See our Arbitrator Appointments page.
Administration under the National Rules:
ADRIC’s Arbitration Rules and National Mediation Rules are available in both official languages. ADRIC appoints arbitrators and administers cases pursuant to these Rules for a fee. Learn more.
Commercial contracts drafted by law firms of all sizes across the country commonly contain a clause indicating that any dispute that arises with respect to the contract will be administered by ADRIC, or one of its affiliates, pursuant to the ADRIC Arbitration Rules. Parties can also agree to submit to the rules in the absence of a contractual term.
