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 comes from the Oxford English Dictionary (we had to go to the library to find that 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 an agreement s designed to provide certainty and finality.
