Faster and more effective
Independent Evaluation is a highly efficient and pragmatic process which culminates with a one-day evaluation conducted face to face by one of our highly experienced Evaluators. Prior to the evaluation, the Evaluator crystallises issues and begins the forensic assessment of the strengths and weaknesses of the parties’ positions. On the day itself, the Evaluator talks each party through the issues, explains the probable outcome if the matter were to proceed through the courts and sets out the proposed resolution. The Evaluator then works with those involved to facilitate the optimal settlement for both sides. By the end of the day, all issues in the case are resolved, including those relating to costs.

Total independence and integrity
