Defamation & Reputation Management

Defamation & Reputation Management

We advise high-profile individuals and celebrities in respect of the protection of their reputation in the public domain.

The advice we provide in this area can include assistance with pre-publication stories to avoid a potential media crisis, seeking retractions and apologies, and compensation, where appropriate.

Legal proceedings are often an option and we are well-versed in seeking immediate protection from the Court for our clients in terms of interim injunctive relief and proceedings for defamation and the misuse of private information. In many instances, protection for our clients will include advising in respect of harassment by journalists/paparazzi and seeking immediate relief from the Court.

Experience includes:

  • Advising a high-profile Michelin starred chef in respect of various defamatory comments/published articles.
  • Successfully defending a libel action on behalf of a ground transport provider in the High Court through to trial.
  • Advising various high-profile clients in respect libel.
