FICM has access to neutrals who can provide parties with a preliminary assessment of facts, evidence or legal merits.
This process, commonly known as Early Neutral Evaluation, or ENE, is designed to serve as a basis for further and fuller negotiations, or, at the very least, help parties avoid further unnecessary stages in litigation.
FICM can assist by proposing suitable experts to act as the early neutral evaluator. We will also handle all aspects of the early neutral evaluation arrangements. These include arranging document exchange, administrating funds, resolving procedural difficulties and providing support and guidance to the parties and the neutral as required.
