Neutral Evaluation Services

When preparing for significant dispute resolution events such as mediation, arbitration or litigation, parties and their respective counsel will inevitably face a complex web of questions as they engage in the critical task of formulating and continuously enhancing their case-specific strategy. How strong is our position? Should we consider settlement or move forward with a trial or arbitration? Is x or y a stronger argument? How is a judge or arbitrator likely to rule on a specific motion? Answering these questions can have a material impact on the ultimate outcome of your case.

Evaluation Services Offered by NAM Neutrals Include:

  • Mock trials (bench and jury)
  • Mock arbitrations
  • Mock mediations
  • Special Master to oversee and/or rule on specific aspects of a matter
  • Discovery referees
  • Expert witnesses in connection with specific procedural or substantive legal issues
  • Appellate proceedings

“Mock trials are a great opportunity to get an objective opinion of the case and what one can do to enhance it and eliminate potential risks.”

Hon. Alan D. Scheinkman, Presiding Justice, Supreme Court of the State of New York, Appellate Division, Second Judicial Department (Ret.)
