Welcome to ADR Forum

Dispute resolution procedures alternative to court litigation, mainly in the form of mediation and arbitration, have gained much force in recent years.


In Namibia, since June 2014, some 57% of cases referred to mediation under the new High Court rules settled, resulting in litigation costs savings of a minimum of N$ 55 000 000.00. With the assistance of a well-trained and experienced mediator the success rate may be increased to 90%, as in the USA and UK.


The benefits of arbitration are:

  • the parties select an arbitrator having the training and experience proportionate to the requirements of their case.
  • savings in costs, because the arbitrator designs an expeditious, efficient and cost-effective procedure tailor-made for the parties’ case.


We provide commercial and civil mediation and arbitration services including:

  • the appointment of the mediator and/or arbitrator
  • the administration of the mediation and/or arbitration
  • the provision of mediation and arbitration rules aimed at expeditious, efficient and cost-effective dispute resolution
  • arrangement of the venue, recording of the arbitration hearings and refreshments
  • management of the finances


Mediation is a voluntary confidential process before an independent impartial person, the mediator, who takes no decision binding on the parties, but guides them to a negotiated settlement.


Arbitration is a voluntary private judicial process before an independent impartial person, the arbitrator, who takes a decision called an award which is binding on the parties.
