Internet & Social Media

Our legal consultants can assist with social media defamation, online harassment and privacy, confidentiality and data protection.

Defamation on social media and online can seriously harm the reputations of individuals and businesses. The reach of social media and the ease and speed with which malicious or damaging content can be posted and shared online is greater than ever before. If you or your business have suffered as a result of being defamed on social media, or from online harassment or privacy issues, we can help you by seeking the removal of the offending content or by taking legal action for damages/compensation, an apology/correction and injunctive relief.

Our legal advisors are experienced in dealing with the legal and practical issues involved in such cases and can help you decide what action to take.

  • Seeking removal of the offending content by taking action against the individual(s) involved (“cease and desist”);
  • Requiring the platform, operator or host of the site to remove or block comments, posts, images or links (“notice and take down”) and/or to identify and/or ban the individual(s) involved;
