In today’s interconnected world, reputations that have taken years to establish can be damaged within minutes by a few mouse-clicks.  Defamatory publications can not only be costly, in terms of loss of revenue/employment opportunity, but can also cause considerable distress and embarrassment.  It is therefore vital to act quickly before a damaging publication spreads.  As experts in English libel law, our defamation solicitors are well-versed to help.
