Everyone has the right to protect their good name and reputation, something that may have been earned over many years and it is something that can easily damaged or lost overnight.

We live in a time where social media platforms have given people, anonymously or otherwise, the means to make statements or comments about a person that are false, misleading or untrue. Online commentators often think they can post or comment on matters without any consequences but statements which are false and injurious can result in significant awards of compensation to injured parties. Apologies and retractions can also be obtained as part of any successful defamation action.

If you feel you have been defamed and would like to talk to us about your case please contact our office and we can advise you on the merits of your case. Some key points to consider include:

*In contentious business, a solicitor may not calculate fees or other charges as a percentage or proportion of any award or settlement.

Employment Law client.
I would like to thank everyone at RVW for their fantastic work, kindness and understanding especially after my calling up nearly every day. Professionalism beyond comparison is what was delivered at every stage and I was just bowled over with your support. At a time when things were very stressful and anxious (My late Mother's probate) I was always lent a sympathetic ear which was very much appreciated. I asked for complete support from RVW when I instructed them, I got much much more. I would without hesitation recommend RVW for their great support, fairness and transparency at every stage. Many thanks again you are just fantastic.
