We litigate defamation matters and represent clients facing reputational attacks.
Reputation is everything. We litigate to uphold yours.
We represent both plaintiffs and defendants in defamation cases. Our practice includes a wide variety of matters, including libel, slander, online defamation, reputation management, defamation removal, privacy, business disparagement and commercial speech.
We’ll help you correct the record.
Before litigation becomes necessary, our firm strategically pursues and secures post-publication retractions for clients. We work to correct the record and obtain corrections, retractions, and apologies for damaging falsehoods.
We advise our clients on pre-publication counsel.
Some of our biggest victories are the words that never get published or uttered. Clients both seek our counsel to ensure sound legal judgment before making a risky statement, and retains us to prevent a defamatory statement from being made by persuading the opposing side of legal liability.
