Alternative dispute resolution offers a cost efficient and prompt resolution to intellectual property conflicts. It also allows the parties to resolve their disputes outside of court in a private forum, with the assistance of a qualified neutral intermediary selected by the parties.
The benefits of using ADR for IP disputes include time, cost, flexibility, party control, neutrality, a single procedure, confidentiality, and expertise. However, it can only be utilized when both parties agree or when mandated by the court.
