Lipsky, David B.; Seeber, Ronald L.
[Excerpt] Is it reasonable to expect that the use of ADR by U.S. corporations will continue to grow in the future? We asked the respondents in our survey a series of questions designed to determine their view on this issue....In general, a large majority of the respondents in our survey believe that they are "likely" or "very likely" to use mediation in the future—38% and 46%, respectively. They were more cautious about the use of arbitration. Only 24% said they were very likely to use it in the future, while 47% said they were likely to do so. More than 29% said they were unlikely or very unlikely to use arbitration in the future, whereas only 16% answered similarly in the case of mediation. Nevertheless, if these projections are accurate, the use of ADR by U.S. corporations will grow significantly.
