Your reputation takes time and energy to build and is the pillar of not only personal but professional interactions. Unfortunately, reputations are fragile and just one defamatory statement against you can causing lasting damage. The broadening scope of the online community and especially social media means there are even more opportunities for false statements to be made that can tear down the reputation you have worked so hard to attain. The rise of ‘cancel culture’ has also caused the impacts of defamatory statements made online, in writing (libel) or spoken (slander), to be increasingly devastating to the individual.
Our lawyers have experience in significant cyber-libel cases and can help when you are being cyberbullied or harassed through social media. Defamation is an incredibly sensitive issue and requires professionalism and specialized expertise to protect your reputation from further harm. Many issues relating to cyber-defamation have yet to be resolved in court or covered by legislatures making our firm’s innovative approach to law even more crucial.
