Dispute Resolution

Individual Dispute

Individual disputes are common and cover areas such as:

  • Individual work place disputes
  • Neighbour disputes
  • Disputing Debt

Individual Workplace Disputes

Conflicts at work may be a disagreement between you and your manager, or you and a co-worker. Any conflict can get in the way of work and this then makes a business less productive. Some issues that can cause conflict at work are:

  • Insufficiently trained management
  • Unfair treatment
  • Unclear job roles
  • Poor communication
  • Poor work environment
  • Lack of equal opportunities
  • Bullying and harassment
  • Unresolved problems
  • Increase in workload

When individual workplace disputes happen the aim is to settle them outside of court. Many disputes can be settled informally between the individual and line manager, however, some cases can escalate and become formal legal claims.

Neighbourhood Disputes

Neighbourhood disputes are very common. If you are having a disagreement with your neighbour, moving house should be the last option. Disputes between you and your neighbours can include the following:

  • Boundary Disputes
  • Rights of Way and other rights over neighbouring
  • Noise complaints
  • Children’s behaviour in the neighbourhood
  • High Hedges

We understand that disputes with neighbours can become highly sensitive and cause tension. Our team is equipped to advise you on your rights and offer effective solutions to remedy the issues and prevent the dispute spiralling out of control.

Disputing Debt

You may have trouble recovering money owed to you by someone refusing to repay you. It may be that someone is claiming to be entitled to money from you and you believe that this is not the case. You may be able to argue that you do not have to pay the money back if:

  • You did not sign a credit agreement or someone else signed it
  • The lender did not follow proper paperwork procedures
  • You were underage at the time of the agreement
  • The time limit for recovering the money has run out
  • The agreement you signed was legally unfair

Probability dictates you are likely to be involved in some kind of dispute throughout your lifetime. When it arises contact Jeffrey Mills Solicitors.
