ADR Centre virtual hub goes live

The Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) Centre’s virtual hub has gone live in the form of a dedicated website.

According to the organisation, the move reflects the rising popularity of dispute resolution in New Zealand.

“The launch of this dedicated ADR Centre website demonstrates the increasing awareness and adoption of alternative dispute resolution as a fair and prompt alternative to litigation. Not only does it alleviate pressure on the courts, but in the current economy, our clients really appreciate the cost-effectiveness of alternative dispute resolution across a whole raft of services and industries,” director Catherine Green explained.

She added that the site consolidates the ADR Centre’s brands, which include The Building Disputes Tribunal, the Independent Complaint and Review Authority, the New Zealand International Arbitration Centre, the New Zealand Dispute Resolution Centre and the Family Dispute Resolution Centre.

The establishment of the virtual hub comes after the August 2022 launch of the organisation’s physical centre – the “first purpose-built centre for dispute resolution in New Zealand”, the ADR Centre said.

“Just as the ADR Centre was purpose-built as the physical hub for all of our brands, people, and practitioners, the new website is our virtual hub. It has been designed as a gateway to our brands, to showcase our world-class ADR facilities, and to help enhance and inform the experience of our ADR people, practitioners, and community,” Green explained.
