Defamation, Libel and Slander
We have extensive experience with defamation law, a complex area of the law that has shifted dramatically as a result of new communications technologies.
We bring a nuanced, sensible approach to libel and slander cases, including an understanding of the role of media strategies and pre-publication review, as well as litigation strategies, as required. We regularly act for both plaintiffs and defendants, including politicians, professionals, corporations, charities, not-for-profit organizations and media organizations, among others.
