We are one of the few regional firms that specialise in defamation law.
We have successfully brought litigation action in the High Court, acting for individuals who have been defamed on facebook, internet forums, national and regional newspapers, political broadcasts, at work and in public. We understand how reputations can be damaged by malicious lies and act promptly to deal with this, whether by way of a retraction, apology or damages.
Also, if someone has accused you of making a defamatory statement we can advise you on how best to deal with those accusations.
Examples of success

Forced a local authority to rectify their records after malicious and unfounded allegations had been made.
