Our defamation solicitors have expertise in dealing with defamation claims, regularly acting for claimants and defendants.
What is a defamation dispute?
Defamation occurs when someone makes a publication, whether written or spoken, that lowers you or your business in the eyes of others, resulting in reputational damage and injury to feelings.
Our defamation solicitors will act swiftly to prevent further publications of defamatory material and will pursue compensation for any losses suffered or injury to feelings.
Reputation is fundamental today and can be lost in a moment. It is vital to protect your reputation and take urgent action to
remedy the damage suffered.
Our defamation dispute team have recently acted in a High Court action against a public body and insurance company dispute, which concerned highly damaging comments made about our client. This was settled out of court upon favourable terms.
Libel is a written type of defamation that occurs when words about an individual or business are published, for example untrue comments that are posted on a website or social media platform such as Facebook.
Slander is another form of defamation, based on verbal comments made from one person to another. Actual loss suffered is usually required to be proven in such claims.
Malicious falsehood is a type of claim that arises when someone publishes a false statement and has done so maliciously to adversely affect an individual or businesses reputation so as to cause it financial loss as a result.
