History of ADRIL

ADR International Limited (ADRIL) was set up in 2002 to provide neutrals (arbitrators, mediators, experts, adjudicators) and advise clients on the most cost-effective alternative dispute resolution (ADR) process for their particular dispute.  ADRIL also assists companies and governments to train their staff on ADR processes and techniques.

The organisation has successfully organized Hong Kong International Arbitration Centre ("HKIAC") Accredited Mediation Courses in Hong Kong and has trained over 1,000 senior civil servants in Hong Kong on dispute resolution.  ADRIL has been contracted by the Government of Macau (since 2009) to train more than 150 senior civil servants, lawyers, judges and business leaders as mediators.  ADRIL has been voted as "International Dispute Resolution Firm of the Year – Mediation, Arbitration and ADR" (Intercontinental Finance Legal Excellence Awards 2011).
