Defamation Law

J.O.S Solicitors provides comprehensive legal and strategic advice to private individuals, corporates and organisations that have experienced reputable damage as a result of defamatory comments, inaccurate statements or false reporting by others and the media.

We also provide specialist defence litigation for individuals and organisations that have been accused of defamation and require immediate action to mitigate against the likely threat of costly legal proceedings.

We have invaluable knowledge and experience in this complex area of law and have a deep understanding of media relations and crisis management through our Public Affairs experience. This provides our clients with a distinct advantage in such defamatory actions*.

Following an initial client consultation, we can better evaluate the reputable damage to the individual or corporate entity and devise the most prudent legal steps to rectify matters, by either seeking an apology and compensation, if the facts so merit. We can also provide a thorough defence against such allegations and limit our clients risk, where possible, to unfavourable public and financial exposure.
