KM Solicitors are experts in defamation law. Defamation cases before the courts have risen sharply in recent years. Defamatory comments whether intentional or not can seriously damage an individual’s reputation which often may have taken years to earn.
The right to a good name is enshrined in the Constitution of Ireland and as such legislation is in place which acts to protect this right. The Defamation Act 2009 came into force on 1 January 2010 and introduced important changes to defamation law. The Act introduced the ‘tort of defamation’ which includes false statements whether spoken, written, broadcast on TV or radio or published on the Internet. At KM Solicitors we can advise you how to vindicate your good name if false, inaccurate or misleading statements have been made about you.
