Our litigation lawyers understand the potential damage that a single defamatory publication can cause to your brand or reputation, and our expert solicitors have many years of experience handling sensitive defamation and reputation issues.

With experience of acting for both claimants and defendants, our team can help protect brand and reputation, often resolving issues without the need to go to court.

Our litigation lawyers are experienced in seeking emergency injunctions to prevent damage to our clients’ reputations by the unlawful actions of others.
