Defamation and Reputation Management

A brand or personal reputation takes many years to establish and may take as long to repair if and when it is damaged. As use of the internet and social media has increased there are an increasing number of ways that a brand or reputation may be compromised. Nowadays, threats to a brand or reputation come from a number of sources such as cyber attacks, falsely published information, hacking, data breaches, error and discrimination.

 

Our 4-stage process

  1. Consultation

A consultation with our Defamation Solicitors will help them to understand the nature of the defamatory statement and will allow them to strategize the best path forward for you.

 

  1. Letter of Demand

Our Defamation Solicitors will require copies of all relevant documentation in order to fully consider your claim such as the offending article or proof of the defamatory speech. Our Defamation Solicitors will then draft the relevant letter of demand.

 

  1. Legal Proceedings

Assuming the offending party does not respond to the letter of demand or make the relevant payment (if any) or furnish you with a letter of apology (as required), our Defamation Solicitors will issue legal proceedings and represent you in a Court of suitable jurisdiction.

 

  1. Enforcement & payment of your claim

Once Judgement is secured against an offending party, it then must be enforced in circumstances where the Damages have still not been discharged. The method of enforcement will depend on the profile of the offending party.
