• If you believe that you have been victim of defamation, slander or libel, our lawyer can help you claim the compensation you deserve for any damage to your personal or businesses reputation.
  • In order to have a successful claim for defamation you will need to show that.
  • The statement itself was defamatory. This means that the statement would be likely to degrade the person concerned in the estimation of what a court would call “right thinking people”. A mere insult is in sufficient.
  • That these statements had been communicated to a third person. If someone had simply insulted someone to their face this would not entitle them to sue.
  • In the case of slander, you will also normally need to show that you have suffered a financial loss as result of the defamatory statement.
