"No Win No Fee" Available for Defamation Cases

Judith Thompson

There are two main types of defamation: 

  • Libel, is when someone publishes a false statement that damages your reputation.
  • Slander, is a false spoken statement that damages your reputation.

Defamatory statements can have serious effects, such as:

  • making people think less of you;
  • disparaging you in your business;
  • causing you to be shunned or avoided; or
  • exposing you to ridicule, contempt and hatred.

If you or your business are the victim of defamation you could make a claim seeking an apology, damages, an injunction and costs.
