    Early Neutral Evaluation

    Early Neutral Evaluation (ENE) in intended to provide a sound basis for further negotiations, or, at the very least, to help parties to better understand their position and avoid unnecessary further steps in adjudication or litigation.  Our  ENE process produces a non-binding recommendation as to what the outcome of a dispute, if proceeded with, might be.  This helps parties to subsequently negotiate a settlement to their matter.  

    For matters exceeding £500,000 please contact us for a bespoke quotation.

    Appoint a Mediator

    Mediation is a flexible and confidential process used to settle a dispute between two or more people or businesses.  It involves appointing a mediator who is an independent and impartial third person to help the parties talk through issues, negotiate and come a mutually acceptable agreement they can both live with.  Mediation is usually much quicker and less expensive than adjudication or court proceedings so it can be a more efficient way of resolving disagreements that allows everyone to move on from the problem all the sooner and keep progress on construction projects going.

    For matters exceeding £500,000 please contact us for a bespoke quotation.

  • Executive Dispute Resolution

    Executive Dispute Resolution (EDR) is a formal but flexible process whereby each Party presents its case on a without prejudice basis to a panel comprising an independent mediator and a senior executive from each of the Parties who has not been previously involved in the dispute.  For further information, download our Blue Touch Paper.

    Expert Determination

    Expert Determination (ED) is a confidential process whereby an independent neutral person acting as a technical expert examines the matter and makes a binding decision.  The decision is based on the technical merits rather than on legal issues.  Power is given to the Neutral by the parties to ask questions and investigate prior to issuing a Decision.

    For matters exceeding £500,000 please contact us for a bespoke quotation.

  • Appoint an Adjudicator

    Under UK law (The Construction Act) all disputes arising out of commercial building contracts can be referred to the decision of an independent adjudicator.  In recent years adjudication has evolved into a complex, legal, procedure that places increasing demands on time, resources and money to the extent that many SME business feel it is now too complicated and costly to use.  Our Adjudicator services provide a procedural framework that is simple and cost effective to use where the amount claimed is less than £500,000.

    For claims exceeding £500,000, please contact us for a bespoke quotation.
