Defamation

We understand the importance of protecting your reputation and integrity in today’s interconnected society. If you or your business have been harmed by false statements, made in person, online or in print, then our expert team of lawyers can work quickly to defend your reputation.

Our lawyers have acted for political commentators, businesses, celebrities and high net worth individuals.

We can assist you in the following areas: –

  • Libel
  • Slander
  • Malicious falsehood
  • Pre-publication advice

We also have experience in: –

  • Seeking pre-emptive injunctive relief preventing further damage to your reputation
  • Claiming for damages
  • Securing a suitable apology

We understand that bringing an action for defamation can be expensive and prohibitive when litigating against a wealthy opponent, which is why we attempt to resolve matters at the pre-action stage before significant costs are incurred. A strongly worded “cease and desist” letter will often result in without prejudice discussions, which can achieve the compensation or apology you are looking for.

You should be aware that there is a strict limitation deadline of one year to take action from the date that the defamatory statement was made, so it is important that you act quickly.

Our specialist lawyers are available 7 days a week to provide you with immediate advice.
