Defending Your Rights to Comment
We can also help you to defend claims if someone has accused you of defaming them.
There may be legal Defences open to you, such as truth, or privilege, or honest comment. Even if you have defamed someone; you may have Limitation Defences, if the strict short time limits for bringing a claim have passed.
It may be that the person who feels that you have defamed him cannot establish that you were referring to them, and if they cannot show identification, this can protect you.
If the complaint cannot show that they have suffered serious harm, then there may not even be a claim. Your right of speech is something that our Team will always fight to protect.
