In business and in life, a reputation is hard earned and can be easily damaged or destroyed.  The development of the internet and the online globalisation of markets offers you and your business almost unlimited potential for growth and development. But with it comes significant risk.  

Your reputation is your asset to protect.  Without prompt action, defamatory statements can damage both you and your business.

We advise on a range of reputation management issues including:

  • Libel
  • Slander
  • Malicious Falsehood
  • Online Defamation
  • Pre-Publication
  • Court proceedings
  • Alternative Dispute Resolution
  • Injunctions

Whether you wish to avoid being exposed to a defamation claim, or whether a defamatory statement has been made in connection with you or your business we can help. We will discuss your objectives and prepare a bespoke strategy that helps you to achieve your goals, be that through alternative forms of dispute resolution or Court proceedings
