Why is the Company called "Accord" ADR Group?

“Accord”  comes from the Latin ad (“toward”) + cord (cor) (“heart; mind; judgment”).                       

(verb)  : to bring into agreement : reconcile : to adjust or fit harmoniously
(noun) : agreement; treaty : balanced interrelationship : harmony                     

The above definition is from the Oxford English Dictionary. Researching that required a trip to the library when we founded the business in 1994. (Remember the days before Wikipedia?)

Parties may "Reach Accord with ACCORD" by making informed decisions in the mediation process and by entering into a settlement agreement designed to provide certainty and finality. 

What is your logo?   is it a maze?   a brain?

Thanks for asking.  Actually, while similar to a maze, and though it looks a bit like a brain, the logo is technically considered a labyrinth.  The path to resolution may appear perplexing, but through the process of mediation, resolution can be achieved with the assistance of an experienced mediator.
