International Law: Legal Disputes

How can I avoid having to resolve legal disputes in courts or through international legal bureaucracies?
A problem that occasionally faces all exporters, and not only companies just beginning to export, is what to do when your foreign partner or buyer is not adhering to an established agreement. Parties entering an international contract can consider alternative methods of resolving disputes outside of the courtroom. These methods, which are generally known as Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR), offer neutral mechanisms for resolving disputes that may arise and can include arbitration, conciliation and mediation.
