At Nath Solicitors in London our defamation lawyers step in to protect your reputation, brand or image when it’s attacked – or is in danger of being attacked. We also act for defendants – individuals and companies – in libel and slander actions.

We have an in-depth understanding of defamation law and the defences available and act for those accused of slander or libel and people or organisations that are the victims of defamatory statements. We are a small, niche team, expert in what we do.


  • Pre-publication: Our ability to act quickly and decisively when required sets us apart from many other defamation law firms. If you are seeking to prevent publication of material it is essential to act urgently. Our team is set up and designed to get to grips with the legal context of your case quickly and respond to tight deadlines. Whether we need to issue an injunction application or we are able to negotiate a pre-publication deal depends on the facts of your case. Either way we are available at short notice to provide robust and practical legal guidance.
  • Post-publication: When defamatory material is already out there in the public domain our priorities are different. It’s all about minimising the damage. This could be by securing a quick removal of the offending content, pushing for a retraction, an apology or clarification. In certain cases you may want to seek monetary damages or other form of compensation.


We can advise on the different remedies available to you whether the defamatory material is:

  • Published online
  • Appears offline
  • Published or made by someone you know
  • Published or made by someone you do not know

Defamation law is highly specialised. We not only have the expertise to advise and represent you, but we will also provide you with the assurance that our services are being provided in complete confidence and security. Protecting your confidentiality and reputation is our priority.
