Our unparalleled expertise in preparing and settling commercial dilapidation claims coupled with industry-specific arbitration and mediation skills has provided us with the resources to provide an effective and commercially advantageous Early Neutral Evaluation (ENE) service. This is where we provide an independent and impartial opinion on a dilapidations claim where the parties and their respective advisors have reached an impasse or are considering escalating matters through legal proceedings.
Our ENE service enables the parties to obtain an honest and unbiased opinion from an experience dilapidations practitioner as to the merits of their claim or defence, the strengths and weaknesses in their stated position and a summary of the likely outcome at trial. This, in turns, informs the parties as to the likely prospect of success or failure should the matter proceed to litigation or ADR and will usually assist in a re-focussed approach to claim management and settlement. This service will often have the advantage of narrowing the position between the parties and promoting early settlement.
Our ENE service is confidential and provided only to the instructing party.
