Defamation

Defamation

We know that our clients’ business reputation is a valuable asset. In an age where information can be broadcast nation-wide at the touch of a button, reputations can be more easily undermined than ever before. Where this has happened, our solicitors and lawyers have worked with our clients to seek appropriate redress for defamation (libel and slander) and for the publication of malicious falsehoods.

We understand that different clients will seek different results. You may believe you should receive financial compensation, or you may simply want to establish the truth and ensure your name is cleared. While our team are experienced litigators, they also understand that court action is not the only route, and where possible they will seek to resolve the problem through forceful yet pragmatic negotiation.

We can also advise clients pre-publication if they are concerned about publishing material that could result in allegations of defamation.

Our Litigation team can help you with:

  • Libel
  • Slander
  • Malicious falsehoods
  • Right to privacy
  • Pre-publication advice
  • Complaints
  • Statements in the press
  • Emails
  • References
  • Advertising
  • The internet
