Home // Online Defamation Lawyers London

If you or your business have been subjected to online defamation you have several legal options. But it’s crucial to act quickly, one thing you can’t do is ignore the offending material and hope it goes away.

A blog post, tweet, online comment or image can attract huge attention and potentially go viral. The damage which can be done to you or your commercial interests, even if something is shared among just a few key clients or personal acquaintances can be irreparable.

Specialist Online Defamation, Libel and Slander Advice

Nath Solicitors in London has developed a high level of expertise in the fast-changing area of defamation law. And we have helped numerous individuals and businesses over many years. We work closely with clients to quickly limit the fallout from internet defamation and any breach of confidentiality. In appropriate cases, we will also pursue damages. We concentrate on getting results quickly, minimising or preventing any damage that has been caused.

Who do I sue for internet defamation?

The law is complex. Our focus in every case is to get the offending material taken down as quickly as we can. This includes seeking its urgent removal from search engine results.

Our first step is to approach the person who posted the material (if known). We will also approach the publisher – the website operator or host – who may have an interest in removing material because of their potential liability under UK defamation law.

Our initial letter will:

  • State the precise nature of the defamation.
  • Request the immediate removal of the material from all internet locations in which it appears.
  • Indicate our intention to instigate legal proceedings if our requests are not met.

We understand that for many the cost of bringing a full-blown legal case is prohibitive. The good news is that for many of our clients the first letter from us has the desired result – the offending material is removed.

If there is a refusal to take down the material, you may have to start proceedings but we will advise you fully of your options at this stage. Cases of this nature are sensitive – we understand how to handle them, negotiating tactfully but forcefully to achieve the result you are looking for.
