Defamation Solicitors

Solicitors with expert knowledge in Defamation

If you are a victim of defamation you will need expert advice. Our defamation solicitors can help you defend against a claim of defamation.

With the rise of social media, it is now easier than ever to not only become a victim of defamation but also cause defamation.

Defamation is covered by the Defamation Act 2013 and is a false statement published to a third party with the intent of causing serious harm to an individual’s reputation.

In order for a claim to be successful, it must have damaged your reputation. Merely insulting vulgar or offensive statements on their own are not actionable without reputational damage.

Individuals, companies and businesses are able to make claims for defamation, however unincorporated businesses and public bodies cannot.

Defences

There are various defences that may be relied upon such as truth, honest opinion, public interest, privilege and consent. Not all of the defences are absolute – some can be overcome by proving malice, i.e.. that the defendant intended to cause damage to the claimant’s reputation.
