Defamation and reputation management

Reputations are hard earned. Whether a client is an individual or a business the team can work quickly to defend their reputation. Now more than ever before published words are disseminated far and wide with ease. The potential for harm is only a click or two away be that from a disgruntled ex-employee, misinformed media outlet, competitor or person holding a grudge.

The Dispute Resolution service understands that damage to reputation can have a knock-on effect to business opportunities, social standing and even finances. Foremost clients need access to good practical advice to resolve the defamation issue as quickly and efficiently as possible to avoid interfering with their business or personal life.

Boyes Turner has experience in dealing with:

  • Libel – permanent publications in writing such as online posts, newspaper articles, or broadcast items.
  • Slander – spoken words.
  • Malicious falsehood – the publication of false statements with the intent to cause under the effect of causing financial harm.


The Dispute Resolution team regularly provides advice on defamation actions for claimants and defendants seeking specialist expertise without the premium London pricing of the most well known libel firms.
