One false statement is all it takes for your good name to be damaged, potentially leading to reputational harm, financial losses and emotional distress.
At Gibson & Associates LLP, we understand just how devastating this can be. Any slight on your character is hard to bear – especially when the claims simply aren’t true. If you’re in this position, you could be entitled to pursue a defamation case. This gives you the chance to seek a retraction of the statement, along with financial damages and a public apology.
Defamation cases arise for all sorts of reasons. Whether you have been wrongly accused of shoplifting, fraud or some other unethical behaviour, we can help restore your reputation.
To speak to a solicitor about any matter relating to defamation, please call us now on +353 1 264 5555 or complete our Online Enquiry and we’ll be delighted to help you.
We are well experienced in providing advice and guidance for a defamation case:
You may have grounds for a defamation case if:
- False statements about you have been published or spoken; and
- These false statements were read or heard by other people; and
- You have suffered reputational damage as a result
Our defamation solicitors offer practical legal advice to those whose name or reputation has been undermined. We can confirm whether you have been the victim of defamation. If so, we will seek a resolution on your behalf. Our aim is to reach an out-of-court settlement. If this proves unsuccessful, we will take your case to the High Court, working to get the justice you deserve.
Defamation cases must be made within one year of the defamatory act, so it is better to contact us sooner rather than later.
