Saracens can provide a thorough understanding on the different aspects of litigation and what impact it can have on yourself, your family and your future. Litigation matters require meticulous examination of every issue involved as, should your claim fail, you carry the great risk of having to pay your opponent’s legal costs. It is often a more appropriate option to resolve matters through mediation or arbitration which are usually less costly and time consuming than litigation.

Media and Intellectual Property
Defamation occurs when something is said or written which is untrue which causes another person’s reputation to be lowered in the eyes of others. There are different forms of defamation including libel and slander. Generally speaking, libel occurs if the defamation is in a permanent form i.e. it is written or published in a newspaper, book or even online. Slander is when the defamation is said or spoken. Libel requires someone to prove that they have suffered actual damage. Our specialist team are experts at identifying defamation and ensuring that defamatory content is removed or retracted, apologies published and damages paid. We use alternate methods to resolve matters but if court involvement becomes necessary we guide our clients through the process and ensure they achieve the best result for them.
