CPR Resuscitates ENE



Since October 2015 the Civil Procedure Rules have expressly encouraged courts to promote the use of Early Neutral Evaluation (“ENE”). The latest amendment to the CPR has included ENE as one of the tools for the court to consider as part of its general management powers under CPR Pt. 3 (1) (m).

Early neutral evaluation (ENE) allows parties to obtain a non-binding assessment of the merits of the case to assist them with their own risk assessments and negotiations. It permits parties to test the strength of their own views of the case in a non-binding way.

9 Gough Chambers have a range of barristers, mediators and arbitrators who can assist with providing Early Neutral Evaluation and help parties towards accelerated dispute resolution.
