Herbert Smith Freehills has launched a new Alternative Dispute Resolution Hub (at www.hsf.com/adr).  

Sitting alongside our ADR Notes blog (which keeps subscribers up to date on legal and other developments in the ADR landscape), the ADR Hub features the latest thinking and in-depth commentary on the role ADR can and should play within dispute resolution and how it can be used to greatest advantage.

In particular, the ADR Hub will include insights from across our global network arising out of the ongoing Global Pound Conference (GPC) series. With seven events concluded in 2016 and over 30 more planned across the globe for the next six months, the GPC will be amongst the most important events in dispute resolution in 2017, with the data and insights gleaned from the series having the potential to influence dispute resolution practice and policies in the coming years.

In addition to regular commentary, the ADR Hub also brings together some of our most in-demand published resources, including:

  • Our 'business-friendly' series of ADR Practical Guides, giving practical guidance on how to make the best use of ADR mechanisms in a variety of contexts
  • Regional spotlights such as our 'ADR in Asia Pacific' series
  • Client research studies into how ADR is (and isn't) being used effectively by corporates, and a toolkit for those looking to optimise the way their organisation employs ADR in their dispute management processes.
