Home 9 For You 9 Defamation

Reputation management has become increasingly important in recent years, particularly with the rise in social media usage. One tweet, one article or one photograph can have a devasting impact on a person’s reputation, career and/or business.

However not all untrue or unpleasant statements will actually constitute defamation in law. The Defamation Act 2009 has defined a defamatory statement as meaning “a statement that tends to injure a person’s reputation in the eyes of reasonable members of society.”
