What is Defamation?

Divided into libel and slander, defamation is the publication of false or incorrect statements from a third party about you or your organisation that has led to serious harm to your reputation. This harm can have a knock-on effect on your ability to earn or the growth of your business.

  • Libel relates to written publications, usually in the form of media articles or social media posts.
  • Slander is concerned with false spoken statements that can cause damage to your reputation.

The primary category for defamation is the damage to reputation by false claims. To support your case, a claim of libel or slander must also be made as soon as possible.
