At Franklins Solicitors, we will be able to assist you in the following areas:

  • Libel
  • Slander
  • Malicious falsehood

The difference between Slander and Libel is the manner in which the false statement is communicated to others.  If such a statement is spoken then it is described as Slander.  If the false statement is, however, written or broadcast, then it is described as Liable.  Increasingly incidences of defamation are made on-line by anonymous Internet users.  In such cases Franklins works closely with IT specialists to trace the individuals concerned. In addition, we can also work closely with your PR team and advisers to ensure that there is a quick, consistent and appropriate response.
