Covid-19

We continue to respond the Coronavirus (Covid-19) situation and to ensure that we do all we can to keep our people, clients, friends and families safe.  We are open for business and operations are running smoothly, however we are continuing to do all we can to limit physical contact and to contain the traffic in to our working premises in Lincoln’s Inn to a safe working minimum.  We continue to be open for business, in as normal a way as we can make it.  Most barristers, practice managers and the rest of our staff team are still working remotely and making the best use of technology to deal effectively with work and meet our clients’ needs.

You can call us on +44 (0)20 7242 2523. Our normal telephone system is still operating and our usual friendly team is available to help.

We have a specific Covid-19 Resources section to assist with the specific issues which the coronavirus pandemic is causing across all sections of society and business.  For ease, see a summary page of all contacts during this unusual time.

Early Neutral Evaluation

Early Neutral Evaluation

Sometimes the parties to a dispute have diametrically opposed perceptions about the law affecting their dispute or the weight or effect of the documentary evidence. Where the parties will be keen to find a commercial resolution, but their widely differing perceptions of the issues in the case are getting in the way, an early neutral evaluation of those issues may be a good solution.

In early neutral evaluation, a neutral person with specialist knowledge and skills is invited to evaluate the case or any particular issues in it. That evaluation is not binding, but is made available to both parties to consider. An independent view of the case or issues can sometimes clear the way for more constructive negotiations to take place.

Our barristers are leaders in their chosen specialism and are available to undertake neutral evaluations of individual issues or of your case as a whole.

If you would like to discuss using early neutral evaluation to resolve a dispute, please contact the Practice Management Team.
