Defamation is a complex area of the law and one that is continually evolving as new technology, such as the internet, makes it easier for comments to reach the public domain.
In protecting an individual against injury to their reputation, the partners at CWD have over 20 years of experience in litigating High Court libel claims (against newspapers and other publishers of written defamatory statements) and High Court slander claims (where defamatory statements are made orally).
Given the subjective nature of many comments, the difficulty in proving “damage” to a person’s reputation, the technical nature of the jurisdiction and the high costs of litigation, you need experienced lawyers who can provide skilful representation both before and during legal proceedings.
The partners at CWD have represented sporting personalities, high profile musicians/entertainers and businesses in the protection of their personal and professional reputations.
One of the keys to our success is that we strive to reach an early resolution in all our cases in order to avoid a lengthy, costly and stressful court process.
