If you feel that your character and reputation has been lowered in the eyes of your friends, family or community due to a false or misleading action/statement made by someone else, you may have a claim for defamation.

We act for clients who have been defamed through print (newspaper or online news publication) or verbally (e.g. accused of stealing an item from a store).

John Gaynor & Co Solicitors LLP have significant expertise in defamation law and recently acted for a client in relation to a defamatory article published in the Sunday World Newspaper. A great result was achieved for our client with an apology issued by The Sunday World and a High Court settlement reached for our client separate to legal fees – Please see below link for review from Independent.ie.
