Court proceedings are slow. The Courts were backlogged pre-COVID and now there is a huge raft of cases waiting to be listed. It can often take over a year to have a final hearing listed.
Court proceedings can also be costly, not just in terms of financial cost, but also physically and mentally draining too.
Once the Court has been asked to adjudicate on a dispute, the Court can order what it thinks is the best solution, which does not always mean that you will agree with the Court’s ruling. Asking the Court to decide means that you have little or no control over the outcome. ADR allows input by you and will result in a decision which you have agreed to in all but arbitration.
