Defamation can be of two types: libel or slander

Libel law covers written allegations in newspapers or magazines, broadcast on the television or radio, or posted on a website or the internet including Facebook and Twitter.

Slander is spoken words or gestures.

We can help you if someone says or publishes something that:

  • makes people think badly of you or your business
  • which damages your reputation and causes hurt feelings.


If you have been defamed we can persuade the other party to change its story, obtain an injunction to prevent further publication; obtain damages and apologies.
