Defamation & Malicious Falsehood Law
We understand that defamation and malicious falsehood can be very damaging to an individual, as well as company. The rise of Human Rights has often challenged and outweighed the defamation laws. We have a highly experienced team of experts who has the competence to assess the balance.
In order for the claimant to bring a claim for defamation, he must prove that the defendant has published a defamatory statement about him or her. This statement must be one that would make a right thinking person think substantially worse of the claimant. The statement can be published to one person – for example via letter – or to millions of people – for example via a newspaper.
We can assist you in:
- • Assessing the merits of your case and pre-action protocol relating to any High Court claim
