Reputation Management:

''Your reputation is everything''.

Whether you are an individual or a company, your reputation could suffer great and lasting damage by people misrepresenting you and telling lies. This situation has been exacerbated by the speed and permanence of online publications and social media alongside traditional media outlets.

The power and reach of social media sites, including Face book and Twitter, can lead to an individual’s reputation being badly damaged at the click of a button. Often ill thought through or malicious comments can stay online permanently. Meanwhile, internet giants, such as Google, can and do bring up these posts when an individual’s name is searched.

  As well as being a search engine, Google also provides the framework for blogs which can also be defamatory. All of these matters are dealt with as part of our practice.  Our defamation lawyers are experts at defending individual and business reputations, including the law of defamation (libel and slander), malicious falsehood and data protection.

 

Early Action: The quicker we can act, the better the outcome. The best way to protect your reputation and defend yourself from defamation is to prevent an allegation from being published in the first place. Our team of lawyers have successfully prevented articles appearing by urgently corresponding with the author or publisher prior to publication to set the record straight.

 

Removal: If a defamatory story has been published online, we work hard to ensure that it is promptly removed. Where required, we can often track down the culprits even if they are anonymous.

 

After Publication: If a defamatory story has already been published, be it online, in the printed press or on TV we can insist on an early and fulsome apology or correction, together with payment of appropriate compensation and your legal costs. This is often enough to set the record straight.

 

Legal Action: We are litigation experts and, where clients have not been able to vindicate their reputations prior to issuing court proceedings, we have a strong record of suing in relation to defamatory articles. Remedies we obtain include undertakings not to repeat an article; an apology; payment of damages and costs and, where appropriate, a statement in open court to correct the record.
