Reputational Issues & Defamation
As the old saying goes, a reputation takes years to establish and can be destroyed in minutes. In recent years, the rise of the internet and the growth of social media has made this truer than ever. Once in the public domain, a stray comment or rumour can cause untold damage to individuals and businesses.
The law in this area has undergone significant changes recently, with the implementation of major new legislation and several important cases. If you think you may have been the subject of defamatory allegations we can help you take prompt and effective action, including seeking an injunction, correction and compensation as appropriate.
