Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) refers to any means of settling disputes other than by litigation. In the property insurance context, ADR generally involves mediation (using a third party to facilitate the negotiation process) or agreed upon arbitration (an abridged version of a trial using limited discovery and simplified rules of evidence). These alternatives rely heavily on the valuation work product used in the measurement of the loss. Quantum has many years of experience providing valuation expertise in ADR proceedings.
