ADR: Taking the high road

13 June 2014  

Stuart Dutson reports on a recent study on the continued popularity of judicial resolution

A new study on businesses’ attitudes to commercial disputes, ‘Companies in Conflict: How Commercial Disputes are Won’, finds that companies work hard to avoid litigation and arbitration. Despite this, the study from Eversheds and academics at King’s College London and the University of Surrey says that general counsel are most likely to see cases go all the way to court rather than being resolved by alternative dispute resolution (ADR). This article examines the findings of that study and the lessons to be learned.
