Reputation & Defamation

Back to Dispute Resolution

Reputation is one of the most valuable assets a person or organisation can have. When this is under threat, it is important to defend it quickly and fervently. The Defamation Act 2013 is designed to create a balance between freedom of expression and the right to a good reputation. This has introduced a whole range of new complexities.

When you are faced with an assault on your reputation, you will need a team of lawyers who understand how print, broadcast and online newsrooms work, and which tactics will work with whom. With over 50 years of successful experience in the area, we are available to our clients 24/7 in the event of a reputational crisis.

We have an excellent track record in securing positive results, including preventing confidential information from being published or aired, without needing to apply for an injunction.
