Defamation

Liverpool Defamation solicitors Carruthers law are experts in Libel,Slander and Privacy. We are based in Liverpool but our clients are nationwide.

A key asset for any business or individual is your reputation.

If you have a defamation or privacy claim which cannot be resolved immediately by negotiation, we will take fast and forceful action to protect your rights, that may be by applying to the court for an  injunction to prevent publication or issuing proceedings in the high court for damages when publication has already taken place.

The issues involved are likely to be sensitive and we approach these appropriately with you.  We will  guide you through the legal process easily and with minimum fuss.  Your claim will be handled by a senior lawyer, with closely supervised assistance from more junior fee earners when appropriate to minimise costs. We are available to be contacted seven days a week so you don’t have to worry.
