Portable Appliance Testing

This requirement has been covered by legislation for some time and specifically Statutory Instrument S.I 188 (2001). More recently the regulations have been strengthened by new legislation under the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act.Call us today to learn more about Portable Appliance Testing.

Dispute Resolution

The range of conflict management and dispute resolution techniques are numerous. They include Negotiation, Mediation, Conciliation, Adjudication and Arbitration to name just a few. This is by no means an exhaustive or exclusive list and no doubt one will come across others. Disputes and conflict are unpleasant. They divert valuable resources from the overall aim.  Conflict is unfortunately part of dynamic capitalism and an integral part of commercialism. Dispute is the unnecessary or dysfunctional element and logically there should be two areas for consideration, Conflict Management and Dispute Resolution. Marcus O'Connor of MFO The Property Professionals has invested time and energy in this particular area of our professional services and is an Associate Member of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators and has excellent Adjudication experience on a number of disputes between Landlords and Tenants.
