All around the world, existing traditional dispute resolution techniques are falling out of favor and are regarded by many as too expensive, too slow and too adversarial. In recent years there has been a growth in the use of Alternative Dispute Resolution and in particular mediation. Mediation is especially useful for resolving business disputes as it enables the business people themselve to maintain control of the dispute and with the aid of a skilled mediator to craft a solution to suit the business interests of those involved. The growth of mediation in the United States and in other countries around the world has been led by in house lawyers keen to look after business interests.
