Defamation and reputation management are a concern for businesses and organisations of all sizes across all sectors. These threats can be the result of disgruntled customers, unhappy employees, media attention, police investigations, regulatory investigations, operational issues and highly sensitive litigation.
Whatever the reputational threat, our defamation and reputation management experts can provide strategic, Board-level advice and can assist with mitigating reputational risk – for example by conducting internal investigations and reviews.
We are also experienced in advising companies and individuals who have been the subject of negative publicity in the media. Our lawyers can advise throughout the entire process, and routinely deal with public relations agencies and in-house communication teams to resolve issues quickly and effectively.
Our defamation lawyers offer 24-hour, year-round support and are able to react to issues as soon as they arise – for example, negotiating with the media or seeking emergency interdicts or injunctions.
