Defamation (formerly known as libel or slander) is a highly nuanced area of law, which was updated with the introduction of the Defamation Act in 2009. Malicious falsehoods and defamation against personal, professional or business reputations are protected under the Act. If you have reason to believe that your good name and reputation has been damaged, you may wish to seek the advice of our expert legal team. As appropriate, we seek retractions, public apologies and compensation for the damage done. At Peter Boyle & Co. Solicitors, we are uncompromising in seeking to protect the rights of clients who have had their reputations damaged by others.
