Being the victim of harassment or defamation can be extremely stressful, disruptive and harmful to your mental and physical health, wellbeing and reputation.

Defamation takes two forms under English law – slander or libel. Slander pertains to verbal defamatory statements made against an individual or organisation, whilst libel refers to written or published defamation.

Harassment refers to threatening, abusive or demeaning behaviour towards an individual or organisation with the intention to cause the victim alarm or distress.

If you believe that somebody is defaming or harassing you, it is important to seek high-quality legal advice to help you assess the strength of your case and to determine whether the behaviour in question meets the required legal criteria to pursue a claim.
