Defamation and Online Privacy

When content appears about you online which is untrue or defamatory, it can affect your personal and professional reputation.

The higher the authority of the site, the higher the content could appear on a search result when people search for your name. The longer you leave it, the bigger the impact it can have.

We work with many individuals to help them remove and challenge defamatory or unwanted content, as well as advise them on any legal issues.

Removing defamatory content

Here are some of the issues we can help you with:

  • Confidential personal information posted without consent
  • False or threatening profiles set up on social and professional media platforms
  • Defamatory comments and opinions relating to personal or commercial issues – often unsubstantiated
  • Outdated and irrelevant content

We can help you challenge and remove defamatory personal information or images, including Right to be Forgotten and Google Removal applications.

Partnering with legal experts in intellectual property and media law, we can advise on copyright issues online, as well as the legal options available to you when challenging online content.

We’re completely transparent about the best options available to you, and what’s likely to be most effective.
