Early Neutral Evaluation is a process in which the parties to a dispute present arguments and evidence to a dispute resolution practitioner in an attempt to resolve the matter at an early stage of the dispute. That practitioner makes a determination on the key issues in dispute, and the most effective means of resolving the dispute without determining the facts of the dispute.
