Defamation

Defamation

Harold G Walker Solicitors fully understand that a 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, a team of specialist solicitors and lawyers have worked with clients to seek appropriate redress for defamation (libel and slander) and for the publication of malicious falsehoods.

They 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 this team are experienced litigators, they also understand that court action is not the only route, and where possible will seek to resolve the problem through forceful yet pragmatic negotiation.

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

The 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
