Litigation & Dispute Resolution

What others say about you can destroy your brand


Reputation management and crisis management is an integral part of any business. What others say about you can build – and destroy – your brand. Don’t let others slander or defame your business. With the increasing presence of businesses and consumers on social media, the potential audience for adverse comments is unfathomably large.

We also have widespread experience in representing defendants to claims of libel and slander, particularly bloggers and distributors of defamatory content on social media.

Our extensive experience covers the following areas of defamation proceedings: –

  • Applications for an injunction to prevent publication of adverse material either online, in print or on television/radio
  • Pre-publication negotiations and agreements
  • Claims and defences to claims under the Defamation Act 2013
  • Claims relating to the publication of third-party material
  • Claims of innocent distribution of defamatory content under the Electronic Commerce (EC Directive) Regulations 2002
  • Press Intrusion and smear campaigns
