How ADRoIT are you? By Philip Argy


Commercial disputes are inevitable, especially in emerging areas of science and technology where the subject matter expertise of those involved in putting deals together frequently leads to misunderstandings and disagreements down the track, which in turn are highly disruptive, distracting and cash-sapping.The ADRoIT (Alternative Dispute Resolution over Information Technology) Principles have been developed by a group of science and technology mediators, arbitrators and lawyers with over 150 years’ combined experience in the area.They are designed to minimise the likelihood of disputes developing in the first place, and to ensure that the usiness case is delivered to the maximum extent possible despite any hiccups during the implementation of any project.
