Defamation Litigation *

At Cantillons Solicitors our experienced and committed litigation team will work with you in establishing what options are available to you following what you would consider the publication, by any means, of a defamatory statement.

A defamatory statement is one that would tend to injure your reputation in the eyes of reasonable members of society.

Defamation litigation is both complex and difficult. It is an area of the law which requires carefully considered and thoughtful advice. There may well be alternatives to a court action which would remedy the damage, without enduring the inevitable stress and upset (and further publication of the defamation).There are very short time limits within which defamation actions must be commenced. If you believe you have been defamed, you should contact a member of our team immediately.  

 We are experienced listeners, we ask the right questions and we give clear, concise and thoughtful advice as to whether a case should be pursued in the courts or if another remedy would be faster and more appropriate. We will work tirelessly to restore your good name and reputation as quickly as possible.
