A defamatory statement occurs when a someone says or writes something about another person that is likely to cause serious harm to reputation.
The potential for defamatory statements is extremely broad. In recent years there have been moves to reign in the effect that defamation laws might have in curtailing public discussion. This has resulted in an increase to the threshold requirements for defamation.
If you are concerned that you have been defamed. Or if you require advice on whether a proposed publication contains defamatory content, you should promptly seek legal advice. Defamation claims need to be resolved or taken to court within one (1) year of the day on which the defamatory conduct occurred. Steps also need to be taken to try to allow the other side to make amends before the matter goes to Court.
The team at Maxwell & Co can help advise you or represent you in connection with any defamatory imputations.
