Building a good reputation takes years of hard work and dedication that you don’t want to lose. Our defamation solicitors can advise you, your business or your organisation on privacy and defamation issues that could hurt your personal and professional reputation.
Our solicitors advise on:
- Defamation (libel and slander)
- Protecting your privacy
- Phone hacking
- Media and crisis management
- Fake social media accounts acting as you or your organisation
- Removing offensive and damaging websites or material online
- False statements about you or your business (malicious falsehood).
We can also advise on what to do if you’re facing accusations of defamation or malicious falsehood yourself. Our team also helps people and businesses assess the risk of publishing information that may lead to defamation claims, and plan accordingly.
The internet and social media have made it more difficult to control what’s reported about you. Whether you’re concerned about your business’s image or your own, we can help you manage your reputation on an on-going basis. We’ll also help you resolve any time-sensitive issues as quickly as possible.
