At a time when criticism can spread like wildfire on the internet, causing terrible damage to a company, businesses need to be especially aware of the dangers of unfair attacks.
Defamation occurs when reputation is damaged without justification. If defamation comes in the form of spoken words then it’s known as slander, if written then it’s known as libel.
It’s not always clear who or what is responsible for reputational damage which means suing for defamation can often be challenging, so it’s crucial you get the right advice.
