7BR has an experienced team of barristers who are regularly instructed as counsel or the Judge on private financial dispute resolution hearings, also known as ‘neutral evaluation’.

Parties may wish to use this process which allows them to book a mutually convenient date, avoiding the delay of waiting for a court date, which is sometimes listed many months in advance. These appointments can take place confidentially in one of our many conference suites or, if suitable, by video conference.

This is a cost-effective and time efficient approach that will enable family’s finances and arrangements for children, to be considered in a less adversarial setting. The indications are impartial and are thoughtfully considered by well-regarded experts from 7BR.

Alternatively, we can offer an ‘early written opinion’ service where we will charge a standard fee to read a lever arch folder of papers comprising Form E’s, questions and answers, and provide a detailed written opinion as to a likely settlement.

The following members are qualifed judges:

  • Gina Allwood
  • Sarah Edwards
  • Simon Rowbotham
