Has your reputation been attacked?
Is an unfair review losing you customers?
Your professional reputation is one of your most valuable assets. If you feel this has been damaged by the words or actions of another person, causing you loss, you may want to put the record straight publicly and prevent further harm.
Depending on how the statements were made you could make an application to court and claim compensation for libel or slander:
- libel is where the alleged defamation is written in print, such as in a newspaper or posted on the internet.
- slander is where the alleged defamation is spoken, such as on television or from one person to another.

We can apply to court for an injunction against any further defamation, ask for a retraction of a statement and claim compensation.
