Alternative dispute resolution (ADR), as the name suggests, provides an alternative to filing a lawsuit and going to court. Unlike litigation, the traditional method for resolving legal disputes, arbitration, mediation, and similar alternatives provide a streamlined and cost-conscious option to deal with a legal issue.

Organizations today of all shapes and sizes are being targeted, resulting in data breach class actions and cyber insurance policy disputes, among other issues.
